François Dey 1981

Lives in Amsterdam. Works in Amsterdam.
Represented by:

Galerie van Gelder

François Dey considers the transient and the immaterial as important as the things, the nature, the people as they are concretely around us. For François Dey, for example, a walk with two people is a moment of 'human bonding', especially if the walk takes a few days. The time of being together is a time that is inevitably filled up with a space that recharges itself so to speak. The experience of time is more intense than usual. KvG
