All through her oeuvre, Roos Theuws (1957, the Netherlands) has been dissecting her medium, slowly, radically, and on a razor’s edge. Light and sound are physical phenomenon, their coherence a product of interpretation. Her awareness of this fact is beautifully exploited in both her photography and video installations, causing the image in front of the viewer to fall into irreconcilable pieces, so that we too can’t help but share her awareness.
Theuws teaches at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam. Her work has been shown at, among others, the Tokyo Biennial in Japan, The Kitchen in New York, US, the Kölnischer Kunstverein in Germany and Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen and Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam in the Netherlands. Her work is held in various public and private collections, such as Huis Marseille in Amsterdam and Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam.
