For a decade now, multidisciplinary visual artist Maze de Boer (1976, Amsterdam) has been creating large-scale site-specific and site-responsive installations. Whether rooms-within-rooms, public space interventions or reconstructed environments, they all have one essential feature in common. Despite their ostensible dissimilarity, they each reveal and play with aspects of their locations which are not immediately apparent: notably, their history. The social and political associations of the space are often the point of departure for De Boer; indeed, they are the very subject and form of his installations.
