Thomas Bakker‘s temporary installations are assembled from pictures, projected slides, video and 16 mm film fragments and combined with everyday objects and their surroundings. Strongly influenced by cinema and architecture his site-specific installations show a constant research into narrative and space. Bakker uses the exhibition space as a studio, but the result is always presented in a clear and formal way. Bakker cleans up and lets the space show itself and his work.
Thomas Bakker earned his Bachelor’s degree from AKV|St.Joost in Breda and his MFA in 2002 from the Sandberg Institute, Amsterdam, where he majored in sculpture and new media.
