About

Geertje Brandenburg (1998 NL) is een beeldend kunstenaar die fotografie, collage en installatie samenbrengt.

Throughout photography-based collages and installations, Geertje Brandenburg investigates the narrative power of images. Drawn from her extensive visual archive, Brandenburg presents photographs devoid of their original context, confronting us with the notion of photography as the result of an outward gaze. As the camera can see us in ways we can never see ourselves, Brandenburg utilises her work to raise the question what it means to be seen. 

By incorporating spatial objects into her work, Brandenburg’s installations are set to redirect the gaze and cause dialogue about the difference between photography and reality.
