In his work, Bart Lunenburg focuses on architecture and urban planning. His work takes the form of sculpture, scale models, photographic series, video work, and drawing.
He is highly fascinated by the kind of ideologies with which the architectural spaces around us are designed; for example, the modernist idea that light and space are primarily conditions for human well-being. Windows, walls, and facades form a recurring motif in his work. The absence of people emphasises the human-like aspect of these spaces and structures.
Bart has focused on the function and role of the window in our daily environment and as a motive in the history of art and architecture. In his most recent project, A Building’s Memory, he investigates the memory of houses, buildings and cities. He finds it very interesting that (building) materials can have a memory of their own and thereby can function as a document.www.bartlunenburg.nl
