Nick Verstand (NL)
Nick Verstand (1984) is a contemporary artist researching human perception through spatial audiovisual compositions. His autonomous installations and live performances investigate the frontier between the material and the immaterial, and are created through collaborative design processes aimed at breaking down social boundaries. The resulting intuitive experiences, co-creations of artist and audience, generate a hypnotizing environment for the subconscious mind. Nick has exhibited and performed at Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, The Shed (NYC), STRP, Design Society (CHN), Paris Couture Week, SXSW (USA), Dekmantel, Art Central Hong Kong, Lowlands, Iceland Airwaves, Dutch Design Week, and collaborated with artists such as Iris van Herpen, Björk and Suzanne Ciani. Dezeen selected his project AURA as one of the top 10 art installations of 2017, alongside Olafur Eliasson, Ai Weiwei and Anish Kapoor.
