Johannes Zacharias from Berlin and currently based in Amsterdam. He is a student of the Gerrit Rietveld Academie.
"Within my practice I focus on exploring the state of mankind, the absurdity of its present shape and its relationship to the past and future. I'm interested in addressing the way in which mankind leaves traces on nature, in how the body and technology have become entangled. In my installations site-specific and non site-specific works are placed in juxtaposition to each other - as an entity producing new, hybrid meanings. In an intuitive and concept-based manner, I'm looking to create social and physical atmospheres, inviting the viewer to look at current culture in a retrospective andintrospective way. The topic that I'm currently working on is transactions and currencies and how we as people build atmospheres of safeness and vulnerability around us."
