jan van de pavert


Jan van de Pavert (Zeist 1960) uses objects and models to explore the role architecture plays in a new social order. The models are made from materials like plaster and plastic; round forms and clean lines give them a utopian feel. Their practicality is not the point; what matters is the promise they make for the future. In his work the artist builds on the idealistic foundations of Modernism and the progressive 1960s. Pavert's oeuvre encompasses work on paper and digital animations. His approach fuels wide-ranging research. Although at first glance the images of people and plants appear to have nothing to do with architecture, the artist sees these works as monumental additions to pavilions, metro stations and other buildings.
