About Feddow Claassen

Feddow Claassen (1970) is visual artist, designer and inventor lives and works in The Hague in The Netherlands.

"I find reflections a constant source of inspiration. Whether it is coming from direct light or bouncing on a shiny surface. But isn’t what we see a mere personal interpretation of our surroundings? This - I find - is what makes life challenging, fun and interesting.

When I’m working on a mirror, I’m constantly confronted with my own image. I see myself concentrating, working to bring into reality ideas and thoughts that my mind has challenged me with.

However, I do not want the interpretation that can be made of my work to be limited to those ideas that inspired me. On the contrary, I want my mirror to fuse ideas, trigger thoughts, to whoever stands in front of it. To question what is real and not. To come up with their own interpretation, their own reflections."


Work: Reflected Objects / Installations



Reflected Objects
Scary Things
 
 
The beauty of the deformed human body:

In earlier times the freak show was a popular and legitimate form of entertainment. Today we tend to be more considerate about it but the monstrosities of the deformed head or body still draw our attention. Our hunger for the macabre hasn’t changed a bit. 

I wanted to be honest and put them back on display in a carousel, because we do want to gaze at them.
