Tim van den Oudenhoven – Germany / Belgium
Tim van den Oudenhoven is a photographic artist and founder and curator of ExtractArt, a multidisciplinary project involving pop-up exhibitions, book publishing, and online gallery activities.
As an artist, his works explore the limits of the photographic medium, using a variety of analog and digital techniques. His work focuses on the limitations of photography as a bearer of truth, and moves away from the medium’s purported adherence to objectivity. While the starting point is always photographic, the end result can explore various artistic fields, from sculpture to performance art.
In 2019, he founded ExtractArt, a platform combining book publishing with a pop-up gallery, presenting exhibitions in locations around Berlin as well as through participation in a number of art fairs around Germany. Rather than concentrating on a specific medium, ExtractArt’s focus is on offering a platform for talented emerging artists to show their work.
In the 11th edition of the Arte Laguna Prize, Tim won a Special Prize with a Residency at Fallani Venezia Serigraphy and he was also a finalist in the photography section of the 16th edition.
