Mountains, Drop Shadows, Source Code and Stuff
13 April – 18 May 2013
Jan Robert Leegte is one of the Netherlands' first explorers of the Internet as a space and source for art production. He has a keen eye for the overlaps in the materiality of virtual and physical worlds, and some of his best works exist offline. With a gentle humorous touch Leegte creates poetic visual and sculptural comments on the mediated worlds that surround us. The work of Jan Robert Leegte exemplifies the way art continues and evolves in the digital age.
