The work of Sjaak Kooij fluctuates between actuality and fiction. In his work he applies elements from the media that cover social, cultural or political issues, but he also uses images from everyday life. Then he places all of this data out of their original context, which creates an exciting interaction between image and content. The viewer is thus confronted with these subjects in an entirely different way. Sjaak mirrors the world that we live in like in a contemporary commedia dell’arte.
