Marcel van Eeden (1965)

Lives in Zurich (CH) / Karlsruhe (DE) / Den Haag (NL). Works in Zurich (CH) / Karlsruhe (DE) / Den Haag (NL).

Marcel van Eeden‘s year of birth 1965 is crucial in his oeuvre. All representations drawn by him are derived from the time before his birth. This implies that he works after existing visual material found in old magazines, books or newspapers. The subjects vary from sober fifties’ interiors, cartoons, fires, to abstract patterns or texts. By copying these pictures Marcel van Eeden takes control, as it were, of a period of time he did not experience himself; he literally bends it to his will. In recent years Marcel van Eeden has been producing series more and more frequently, in which an element of fiction enters the work. A first example of this are the drawings concerning the ficitive artist Paul Ganz. In the series ‘Wiegand’ that was shown at the Berlin Biennale of 2006, the fiction comes to full bloom. By manipulating existing image material he plunges the main character Wiegand (who actually was an American botanicus) into a multitude of adventures as a secret agent, abstract expressionist painter, mountaineer and adventurer. In the following series Marcel van Eeden weaves an ever more intricate plot around the principle characters Wiegand, Sollman and Boryna.
