television by Conny Kuilboer

Television encounter the moment of waiting… The chosen material blankets, is a material I often use. It links directly back to my childhood. I like to work with the idea of images from my childhood and redefine what these images mean to me. The abstract figure of the test-screen has become so obvious, and through that the image itself carries a lot more then only being a calibration utility for a television. While giving a sense of nostalgia it is an image that projects to the future. The viewer (and I) were waiting while watching this colourful pattern on the tube.

With my work I am searching for connections. I find them in simple objects and images I see and use daily but also in more complex subjects like religion and media. Nowadays, individualism is the standard. I want to ask questions about this. Questions that summon to reflect about how people relate to each another. I research the resemblance that connects all of us. But without the intention to communicate this in an unambiguous manner. I translate this research in objects and (temporal) installations in which the application of the chosen material plays an significant role.
