Artist Talk: Hiryczuk/ Van Oevelen

Artist talk + Q&A by Hiryczuk/ van Oevelen about their current (visual) research about what seeing can mean for our relation with the environment. From Seeing to Acting presents Hiryczuk/ Van Oevelen’s photographic work Gaze Multiple – Hawthorn (2021), made on the occasion of the exhibition, and part of their PhD-research The Gaze Multiple.


Hiryczuk / Van Oevelen
Hiryczuk / Van Oevelen is a collaboration between artists/ researchers Elodie Hiryczuk (1977, Avignon) and Sjoerd van Oevelen (1974, Steenbergen). They are interested in the workings of perception in humankind's relationship to nature and the landscape. The differences and similarities between Western and Eastern traditions of painting and photography deeply shape their work and thinking.
