Hans Eijkelboom
May 8, 2009 - June 3, 2009

At 2x2projects Hans Eijkelboom presents a 60 year history of technical tools for the making of photographic images combined with a subject getting older in that same period of time. Two contrary matters of progress become visible, the aging of a human being versus the reinvention of a constantly modernizing technology.(during Art Amsterdam, May 13-17, the exhibition is open by appointment only)
Hans began his artistic career in the 70`s with an installation that was part of a group show that included Joseph Beuys, Ed Ruscha, and Douglas Huebler. Since then, he has produced over twenty-five books, gaining renown in Europe for self-publishing many of them, and his work has been exhibited internationally, including solo shows at the Nederlands Fotomuseum, Rotterdam; Museum of Modern Art, Arnhem, the Netherlands; Kröller-Müller Museum, Otterlo, the Netherlands; Provincial Museum of Photography, Antwerp, Belgium; and Kunstverein Grafschaft Bentheim, Neuenhaus, Germany. Eijkelboom is based in Amsterdam.
