"I am a Dutch artist, specialized in the documentary film genre and video art. My video art examines the intertwined relation between humans and their natural environment. My work is characterized by its apparent simplicity; through its slow pace it contrasts with the speed and volatility of modern visual culture. The embodied experience of time and place is central to my art. In the process, I invent my own language of signification, leaving the audience the space to make its own interpretations." - Pat Van Boeckel: http://patvanboeckel.nl/
Van Boeckel has showcased his work for Altered before in 2014, the response to his work was that of wonderment and often rooms exhibiting his piece's will fall silent when observing the work. There's something otherworldly to Van Boeckels work that makes it appear separate and yet part of the space, forming a strange dimension with which the audience resides. In Altered 2015, 'Entering a New World' will be shown at St. Andrews church, Heckington. The piece was made with the intention of bringing the church to life by reconnecting it with its community and to encourage them to explore the church, using the projections and videos as a guide.
'Entering a New World' will be exhibited at St. Andrew's, St. Andrews Street, Heckington, NG34 9RF
