'The work of Dutch visual artist Jeroen Doorenweerd (1962, Terneuzen) lies somewhere between sculpture, design and landscape architecture.
Since 1990, he has created works of art in such disparate locations as a container transhipment port, a ministry, a penitentiary, a meadow, and a shelter for drug addicts. In these projects, Doorenweerd combines traditional craftsmanship with cutting-edge technology. He consistently draws the viewer’s attention to the implicit qualities of a particular place, which are not necessarily the most conspicuous ones. An encounter with Doorenweerd’s work intensifies the experience of the here and now.'
Jeroen Doorenweerd was born in Terneuzen in 1962. His father was a barge captain, and as a child he roamed the rivers of the Netherlands and Belgium. But after he spent a few years at boarding school, his family moved onto dry land in Terneuzen, where Jeroen attended secondary school. From 1981 to 1986 he was enrolled at the visual arts academy in Tilburg, where he studied painting and drawing with René Daniëls and Marlène Dumas. After graduating he studied at the Ateliers, then located in Haarlem, from 1987 to 1989. Jeroen Doorenweerd lives and works in Tilburg in the Netherlands.
