Tjeerd Alkema. Volumes & travaux plats
Monograph of Tjeerd Alkema.
In 1963, Tjeerd Alkema left the Netherlands, where he had studied at the Fine Arts School in The Hague, for Montpellier. Trained in the strict school of stereotomy, he quickly moved away from it to survey urban spaces or landscapes, equipped with a super eight camera and a still camera. In the early 1970s, as a member of the avant-garde group A.B.C. Productions, he took part in exhibitions in Montpellier and Coaraze that brought together numerous artists around a common desire to break with conventional frameworks by showing works outside of any official distribution structure. From the 1980s onwards, his work developed around research into constructions in multiple perspectives, whether in flat works or in volume. Tjeerd Alkema's anamorphoses offer the body and the eye an experience that multiplies and relativises the points of view and thus the perception of reality.
A study on the beginnings of the work in the 1970s by Maud Marron-Wojewodzki (curator at the Fabre Museum in Montpellier), another by Emmanuel Latreille (director of the FRAC Occitanie Montpellier) on the deployment of the work in all its aspects, and a third by Marie Cantos (member of AICA) on the drawings, provide an overview of Tjeerd Alkema's work. An anthology of critical texts, an interview and a bio-bibliography complete this approach to the work in its themes and its history.
