"Obsession" january - march 2015 

Born in The Netherlands in 1977, he lives and works between Finland, The Netherlands, and Germany.

Guido van der Werve is known for his video work; the incongruent interruptions of the sublime punctuate the Romantic grandeur with wry humor and signal the inner turmoil of the artist, approaching art as therapy. In his videos, anxiety and irony mix, with past traditions serving as both clutch and foil. When talking about his own art, van der Werve says: “I’m not trying to be an artist or to make art, but I just try to live my life in a way that I can make things that touch other people in the same or bigger way that some things touched me.”
