Marinus Boezem

Year and place of birth: 1934, Leerdam, The Netherlands Location: Middelburg, The Netherlands

Marinus Boezem is an important figure in Dutch conceptual art. His early work was characterized by the link between Marcel Duchamp's ready-made art and the land art. From 1960 Boezem, like Sol LeWitt, sold works of art that were simply an idea on paper. He strove to bring the visual arts outside the confines of museums. From the mid-‘70s, Boezem began to develop his conceptual ideas sculpturally. He combined light, air, sound and movement with a formally refined, minimalistic visual language. In the ‘80s landscapes were once again featured in Boezem's work.
