Omschrijving werk

Short bio: Trained as a painter, Boon quickly developed as a multidisciplinairy artist in the nineties. She formed her band ‘The Reincarnations’ with which she performed sound attacks in public space and started making short films in 2004. Her work has been shown throughout the world in Festivals, museums and galleries. She is Master of Film and lecturer at the bachelor of Arts at the KABK and the Conservatoire in The Hague. Artist Statement, Channa Boon. I prize open reality to reveal a different reality behind it. I passionately believe that our imagination is the true spark for the physical reality around us, while that reality is the inspiration for our imagination. So these inner images, as well as the collective images we all share, are in a continuous dialogue with the physical world around us. I am searching for the moment when the communication between these inner and outer worlds stagnates or stops, causing tension, friction. In my view, that causes a delusion, collectively or individually. This may be subtle or grotesque, but it always has an impact. My work operates at the various levels that occur within this mechanism, thereby touching both our individual and collective consciousness. The physical exponent in this phenomenon is the knowledge that the body, no matter where it is located on our planet, is a carrier of information. Managing information at ‘cell level’, a location functions in the same way. As we move around in this ‘field’ of information, our thinking moves and changes, too. I am always looking for the core image of a cluster of ideas or images that performes a pivotal function in the work. You could describe this image as a ‘device’ or ‘tool’. The essense of this ‘apparatus’, is its physical quality; it has to do nothing other than simply be. This ‘body’ is the lense, that generates the reversal of the image; it embodies the perception and makes the translation possible.
