PhD. Born 1988 in The Netherlands. Currently based in Tokyo. Ruijters focuses on the phenomenology of intimacy and ethnic identity. Through his art he explores how contemporaneity shifts and modifies these phenomena. In his work overstimulation, speed and coldness of contemporary systems clash with the artist’s need to cherish and express what is deeply human. Physicality, materiality, technology, interaction, and the sense of touch are fundamental elements of his practice.
