Kim Nuijen (1984) NL
From a young age the seductive side of advertisements and image building fascinated Kim Nuijen (Voorburg, 1984). She studied the power of images during her Communication BA, followed by a career in advertising and later on by obtaining a BA in Photography and MA in Photography/ Fine Art.
Nuijens artistic practice focuses on visual culture and digital mass media – she creates photographic works and moving images.
She is curious how images seduce us, what effect it has on our sense of reality, and how it (re)shapes identity. She investigates how images circulate and what this does to their meaning. Based on the vantage point of the viewer she wants to question not only what we see, but also what we perceive to be real.
