Rob Voerman is often inspired by modernist architecture and the utopian ideas about society on which they are based. Voerman’s works are defined by a dialogue between the forms of old archaic appearances of the farmers-life and the modern technically developed society. The works question the way in which societies function and might function in the future. Often it is possible for the viewer to interact with the works; they can enter it and sleep, work and drink inside the installations.
Rob Voerman lives in Arnhem. He studied at the CABK in Kampen (nowadays called ArtEZ Art & Design) and Vestlandets Kunstakademi, Bergen, Norway.
