Rudy Luijters and Onno Dirker, both visual artists, founded Atelier Veldwerk in 2003.
Their work focuses on the analyses and design of public space and landscape in its broadest sense.
Listing, analysing and demonstrate reality –creating a new context – is the keynote in their work; they may then make interventions but cultural analysis can also be an objective in itself. Whatever the case, visual art is always the frame of reference. Their method is that of ‘the unfocused gaze’, that is, doing research from a cultural perspective without establishing prior criteria or guidelines.
Since 2019, Atelier Veldwerk is joined by Juliette Mourad. Graduated in architecture studies oriented towards landscape and territory, Juliette collaborates in studying and valuing the significance of place, often through botany.
