Chaim van Luit

Chaim van Luit places archaeology in the context of art. While strolling through forests and cities, Van Luit collects unusual materials, such as salt, stone or fireworks. The finds provide a starting point for his sculptures, photos and videos. At first glance, the simple, reduced forms stand out. Upon closer inspection, the images often appear to carry vestiges of a specific history, such as the wayfinding created by visitors in Limburg’s marl caves or scars on a person’s skin. Van Luit meticulously documents his quests for secret entrances, hidden cave systems or objects. His fieldwork often constitutes the work of art itself.
