Sander Breure & Witte van Hulzen

Sander Breure & Witte van Hulzen (1985)

Lives in Amsterdam. Works in Amsterdam.

A constant throughout the multidisciplinary work of Sander Breure & Witte van Hulzen is their fascination with human behavior, the coded structures within it, the influence of time and place on human relationships, physiognomy and body language. That societal interest is explicitly manifest in ‘Parts, Bits and Pieces’. Here the word ‘part’ can also be taken to mean ‘role’: the role played by an actor, for instance, but also the roles (of pupil, doctor, mother, customer or loved one) played by people in day-to-day life.
