Remy Jungerman

Born, 1959

From the catalogue Who More Sci-Fi Than Us?: Contemporary Art from the Caribbean: “Remy Jungerman was born in Moengo, Suriname and has lived in Amsterdam since 19990… Jungerman uses collages, sculptures and installations to showcultural critique(s) of the local and the global, the internal and the external. Traditional materials and objects are placed in different contexts that challenge the established notions of their representation within Western society. Jungerman gets his inspiration from Afro-religious elements of the traditional Maroon culture in Suriname and the Diaspora. At the same time he is also inspired by Western trends in art and modern communication technology.”
