Overview participating exhibitions
We ascribe special qualities to things we hold dear. Rutger Prins sees the laptop he carried everywhere with him as a teenager as an object which, thanks to the optional Internet connection, has greatly shaped him as a person. His series PERSONAL EFFECTS is dedicated to objects which have had a big impact on his life. By completely destroying the out-dated and unneeded objects, like his old laptop, he says goodbye in a manner both violent and appropriate – just like us, the objects that define us are fleeting.
Rutger Prins (Netherlands, 1983) studied Graphic Design at the Minerva Art Academy, and encountered photography whilst studying. After ten years of working for numerous large brands in the creative industry, he is now focusing on a career as an artist.
