Biography

Henk Stallinga (1962) graduated at the Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam in 1993 and founded his studio that same year.

Stallinga frequently uses parts of mass produced ordinary items and industrial processes to built his conceptual multimedia installations and sculptures. A minimalistic visual language, light, sound and movement are recurring elements in them.

The concepts behind Stallinga's works are often based on our awareness of the everyday world around us. This involves concepts like sense of time, sonorous and visual perception and experience of energy in the form of light, heat or movement. The observer is often left surprised or even optically deceived by Stallinga's works in which every day phenomena are presented in a different context.

Studio Stallinga is the organization behind the artist Henk Stallinga. Since 1998, the studio has been run jointly with fellow owner Annemarie Galani.
