Hello! My name is MARC ELISABETH VAN BUUL (b. 1992) and I'm an Arnhem (The Netherlands) based multi-disciplinary conceptual artist, working mainly with photography and video. For me, photography is a perfect tool for transformation. For imagining a kind of illusion in the everyday. I prefer creating a scene or framework wherein surprises could occur. There’s always a fantasy about an image premeditated and polished in my brain, but my best images are a combination of 'the idea' and 'the surprise'. Creating images together and thereby blurring the, often hierarchical, relationship between photographer/director and model is something I strive for. I'm also constantly aware and on the lookout, craving new potential images. Searching for the absurd, but not exclusively. I see myself as a collector and I use the photographic medium as a tool to collect. At the center of my approach is the idea and I have a, almost obsessive, dedication of bringing that to life.
