Watch Locally, Think Globally

A blind subject at the gate



A man gets paranoid by the vague, elastic bounds of virtual and real hostility. He's getting more and more tangled in his own feeling of superiority.



Born in 1980 in the Netherlands, Daan started with animation when he was 18. He studied at the “Academy for Art and Design in s-Hertogenbosch”. He also receipts a residency for the “Rijksakademie” in Amsterdam in 2003 and 2004. After that he gets several other stipends. In 2005 / 2006 he also receipts a residency for the “Le Fresnoy Studio National” in Lille. His films had been showed on national and international film-festivals and got rewarded with several awards. Atmosphere and movement, the art of reality, surrealism, the bizarre and macabre play an important role in his work.
