Artworks by Artist: Veen, Mare

Mare Veen is an independent Visual Artist from the Netherlands. She has a background in theatre and graduated from the Photo Academy in Amsterdam spring 2017. Her current academic function is 'Programme coordinator and Tutor International Master Artist Educator at ArtEZ University of the Arts'.


Mare uses photography and video and often writes monologues to go with a series of images. "A monologue helps me to organize my research on the subject. More importantly however, it allows me to crawl into the skin and deepen my understanding of an individual's feelings with regard to the central theme."


Her work revolves around philosophical questions. As an artist, she seeks to respond to locations that she carefully chooses. "I intervene using materials alien to the location. I direct my models thereby often challenging their physical abilities. I seek to find a relationship between a subject or an object and location that is interesting because it is surprising, in perfect harmony or in a way alienating."
