Lonneke de Groot constructs still lives and arrangements which she then photographs. In her work photography, painting and sculpture overlap. In this way she creates a new pictorial space in which she challenges still life and photography. What are the possibilities and boundaries of the photographic still life in our image-culture? In her work de Groot creates a dialogue with images throughout history.

Her subjects are everyday spaces and objects, often related to her own life. On the level of the image de Groot explores space, representation and texture. More generally she asks from which perspective we view the world. What role do imagination, perception and (collective) memory play in the position from which we see?

Contradictions which she explores in her work are inside and outside, original and copy, presence and absence, content and void.

De Groot lives and works in Amsterdam (NL). After receiving a BA Philosophy and a MA Photographic Studies she graduated from the Photography Department of the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in 2013.
