Daan Paans (NL, 1985) investigates the concept of time. He is interested in the way time - past, present and future - shapes our interpretation of the world. His long-term projects focus on the human incapacity to domesticate and control time.
In the past few years Paans has been nominated for the Kf Hein Stipendium, Foam’s Paul Huf Award, Bouw in Beeld Award and Somfy Photography Award and won one of the commissions by Vrij Nederland for their annual photographic stories. He has also exhibited at the Galapagos Art Space (New York), Red Hook Labs (New York), Beaconsfield Gallery Vauxhall (London), Münchner Stadtmuseum, and the Erarta Museum of Contemporary Art (St. Petersburg). In 2016 he was labeled: Foam Talent.
