New work Paris Error


On november 13, 2015 I witnessed one of the terror attacks in Paris. I've been working on the new project PARIS ERROR, which focusses on this experience.
See the work at the show PREVIEW in Galerie Pennings in Eindhoven from April 15 - May 26.
One image of the project is published in Foam Magazine #49.

A lot of images at Kunstlinie Almere


The projects Showroom, Showroom Girls and The Do-It-Yourselfie Guide are on show in a large installation at Kunstlinie Almere Flevoland. The show Overdaad focusses on the excess of images in our society, is curated by Shehera Grot & Stephanie Afrifa and shows work by Erik Kessels, Jonas Lindstroem, Matthias Oostrik, Norimichi Hirakawa, Heather Dewey-Hagbor and Willem Popelier. From 16 March - 17 June 2018.

About




BIO

Willem Popelier is an artist working with photography. His focus is on the mechanisms and politics of representation. He researches the generally accepted ways in which photos are used, and how identity is represented and perceived through photography. Thus his focus is mostly on popular culture, the ubiquitous image and its effects on society.

His work is exhibited worldwide, published in magazines such as C Photo and Foam Magazine, awarded with several prizes including a C/O Berlin Talent, a Bronze Medal for Best Book Design from all over the World, and nominated for the ICP Infinity Award and the Prix Pictet, among others.

He is tutor in photography and critical studies at the Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam and regularly gives lectures and workshops addressing the ubiquitous image, selfies, the role and implementation of artistic research, and more.
