Lonnie van Brummelen / Siebren de Haan


Artists Lonnie van Brummelen and Siebren de Haan have worked together since 2002, producing film installations and exhibition projects that explore the boundaries of the public realm. Their silent films peruse the tones, movements and textures of cultural and geopolitical landscapes like Europe’s new borders (Grossraum, 2005), sites of global trade (Monument of Sugar, 2007), or the non-sites of cultural heritage (Monument to Another Man's Fatherland, 2008). These films are often countered by textual supplements, which disclose the contingency of our fieldwork and research. Performing a drifting studio practice, they are involved in all aspects of (re)production from the handling of the cinema-eye, to montage, writing, or the graphical design of artist publications.

Van Brummelen and De Haan’s works have been shown at a.o.  Palais de Tokyo, Paris; Kunsthaus Zurich; Argos, Brussels; SMBA and De Appel Amsterdam; CCA Vilnius; the Shanghai and Guangju Biennials. Included in public collections of MUDAM Luxembourg; FRAC Marseille; Museum of Modern Art, New York; Julia Stoschek Collection, Dusseldorf; Hoffmann Sammlung, Berlin; Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam; Rabo Art Collection; and Amsterdam City Archives.
