Bert Timmermans

Of Mud and the Metropolis

Bert Timmermans deals with the stratification of history, its memory and amnesia, and how these metamorphose reality. Timmermans’ artistic practice is rooted in the tradition of pioneering image archeologists Aby Warburg and Walter Benjamin, who studied the nexus between iconology and media, image and history. His works are created in multiple sessions, through procedures that build on the practical theory and theoretical praxis of montage. Timmermans works alternately with mixed media, paint, ink and collages or montages.
