Simon van Til

Belgium, Antwerp Van der Mieden Gallery

Simon van Til (1985, The Netherlands) studied at ArtEZ, Institute for the Arts, in Arnhem and currently at De Ateliers in Amsterdam. He researches the physiological phenomena of our planet like time, space, light and distance. Van Til uses the 4X5 camera as an instrument to register fact objectively, to catch time by playing with exposure and shutter speed. “Even more than coming to that one image, the camera offers the possibility to get a grip on time, on it’s passing by. The camera goes beyond the human eye and takes a ruthless look on the fulfillment of reality.”
