Jeroen Heester
Boxmeer (1972)
Amsterdam.

Jeroen Heester is a prize winning architect, publicist and artist.
Works by Heester have been exhibited in musea and art platforms in the Netherlands. His architectural visions have been published both nationally and internationally.

In his studies Heester focussed on the duality mindset in relation to moral relativism and relativity.

Later on his works started to relate to the culture of the destruction of aesthetics in the field of marketing.

Both periodes combined, Heester states: “We are all dancing to the music of our duality mindset on the dancefloor of pragmatism.
It seems as if we have choosen fear and greed -and its equivalents- as a battlefield to spent our entire lives in. I have never been able to ignore that idea. It has become the fundamental theme in my works.”
