Boris Tellegen (NL, 1968) began his artistic career using his pseudonym on the streets in the 1980s. Tellegen always treated the two dimensional frame of the letter and the word as sculpture, bursting out or morphing into the wall, piercing its boundaries by adding a dimension. By combining the reliefs of his practice with his education in industrial design, he soon started to create three-dimensional work on the intersection of architecture, painting, sculpture and installation. In his body of work made over a thirty-year span, Tellegen explores how to transcend the boundaries of walls by annexing, deconstructing and recomposing them, to ultimately disregard them in recent installations. Through the ever-fluctuating shape of his work, Tellegen continues to disrupt our perception of surface and space. Boris Tellegen received his education in Industrial Design Engineering at the Technical University of Delft (NL, 1988-94). Tellegen has exhibited widely in European, North American and Australian museums, institutions and galleries. Recent exhibitions include MIMA, Brussels (BE, 2017), Les Abattoirs, Toulouse (FR, 2016), Amsterdam Museum (NL, 2015) and Palais de Tokyo, Paris (FR, 2014). Tellegen regularly creates commissioned sculptures in the public spaces. A recent example is a series of sculptures between Amersfoort and Utrecht in the framework of De Stijl’s centenary celebration (NL, 2017).

Over de kunstenaar

Centraal Museum
Zochten Mondriaan, Rietveld en andere kunstenaars naar universele harmonie, de beelden van Tellegen zijn juist cryptisch, soms rauw en ontregelend. Net als de werken van de stijlkunstenaars, kun je de beelden van Boris Tellegen ook levendig, vrij, en vrolijk noemen.

De Tijd
De installaties van Tellegen zijn vaak op elkaar liggende of vastgemaakte elementen. Hij transformeert zo tweedimensionale vormen naar een driedimensionale installatie. Daarbij recycleert hij geregeld materiaal van afgebroken installaties.
