Wessel Baarda

About

Wessel Baarda’s (B. 1989, NL) work features depictions of everyday life in strange, jarring settings. A body of work where the most ordinary situations are portrayed from an overwhelming and personal point of view, a narrative that finds its strength in the banality of life itself. It is a way of critically interrogating everyday life in our visual culture by drawing the line between reality and fantasy, commerce, and autonomy through depictions of (unsettling) visual scenes. The work contemplates our contemporary reality, in which the limits between real life and fiction are as close to disappearing as ever. Creating narratives that highlight the absurdity of mundane settings amplifying the strange times we live in.
