Dean Kisters takes night-time photographs on the streets of Heerlen. He photographs the rough and ready side of a rebellious city with its errant inhabitants.
In the twilight zone between sleeping and waking, Kisters shows us the many faces of this post-industrial anti-city, both above-ground and underground. He registers reality not in documentary form, but as a personal observation. Kisters’ shots are poignant and uncompromising, whilst at the same time the noise and graininess give his images a cinematic and dreamlike quality. Kisters will be showing his latest photographic work UUME TUUT in large format in the SCHUNCK shop window.
In addition to the impressive prints of Kisters' photos, the installation in the vitrine was fitted with a floor tag. Kisters realised this together with fellow artists Massoud Sakhi and Tom Lindelauf. The result is a 30 metre long 'piece' in which they explored the boundaries between their styles, and let themselves be led by the unpredictability of 'freestyling'.
Dean Kisters (1996) studies photography at the Academy of Fine Arts in Maastricht and lives in Heerlen. He has a studio in PAND at Honigmannstraat 51-53 where he organises exhibitions, concerts and film screenings with fellow artists. Kisters is currently working as a scriptwriter, director and editor on the fiction film 'Van de ratten begaffeld', shot in Heerlen.
