Daniel van Straalen, Galerie Stigter van Doesburg

Daniel van Straalen (1987)

Lives in Den Haag. Works in Den Haag.

Daniel van Straalen starts a game with the mind of the viewer. By using images that are immediately recognizable, he offers an opportunity to interpret his work. At the same time, this possibility is also a deception: what is immediately recognized offers no more room for other associations. This also raises questions about authenticity, one of the key elements in Van Straalen's work. He investigates what authenticity still entails in a world dominated by the internet. Does it even matter what 'real' is and what 'fake' is, or who was the 'first' who came up with a certain idea?
