Peggy Franck (b. 1978, Zevenaar, NL) lives and works in Amsterdam.
Peggy Franck is known for her spatial explorations of the intersection between photography, installation and painting. Constantly reinventing this exploration of layered dimensions, her work represents space, the presence of which can be felt even when invisible.
Franck's distinctive brushstrokes are thus only the result of a longer and less visible process, for they work as gestures, visualisations of the artist's inner world. Sometimes deeply referential, other times merely paint, shaped by movement, the strokes look everything but accidental; instead, they seem to be placing themselves on paper, on wood, on objects and walls, giving the impression of being alive, in constant dialogue and movement.
By photographing them, the artist frames the strokes, making them more graspable, evident and “real”. At the same time they are never really there, but are somewhere in the in between.
Her work has been shown in exhibitions at Arcade, London; Frans Hals Museum, Haarlem; FOAM, Amsterdam; Stigter Van Doesburg, Amsterdam; OUTPOST, Norwich; Künstlerhaus Bethaniën, Berlin; Westfälischer Kunstverein, Münster; Raum für zeitgenössische Fotografie, Coalmine, Winterthur; Manifesta Foundation, Amsterdam; Middlemarch, Brussels; Crawford Art Gallery, Cork; Photographers Gallery, London; (SIC), Brussels; Dorothea Schlüter, Hamburg and others. She was an artist-in-residence at Rijksakademie, Amsterdam and Künstlerhaus Bethaniën, Berlin.
