Sander Wassink


Sander Wassink is an artist and designer who encourages us to reconsider our ideas on beauty, aesthetic value and status by asking questions about what is important and desirable in terms of history, memory and the preservation of a past that is slipping away. His work is focused on the discarded, the abandoned, the leftover and attempts to reimagine what can be done with the already partially formed. Whether the object is the partly demolished facade of an abandoned building, or the everyday detritus from our hyperproductive culture, he asks what new forms and visions of beauty exist to be discovered and appreciated. His creative practice sees him heavily engaging in product deconstruction, harnessing the raw material to develop objects with new meaning.
