Pieter van der Schaaf

Pieter van der Schaaf’s installations utilize construction materials normally concealed behind architectural cladding, facade or rendering; adhering to the technical standards of the material while using it to directly build a visual space. As a result, the material intervention and the space housing it function as parallel versions of one another. The work is a diagrammatic representation of the hosting space; merging into, and infiltrating its architectural logic, and adhering to the same international standardizations, thus parasitizing the exhibition infrastructure. Van der Schaaf aims to destabilize the assumption of who hosts or supports whom within an exhibition context by working with its own infrastructure, effectively having the walls turn their back towards the viewer.
