Biography

Jan Henderikse

Jan Henderikse

° 1937
Delft,
The Netherlands

Jan Hendrikse initiated the first exhibition of "Informal painting" in the mensa of Delft University in 1958 and is regarded as the founder of the Dutch Informal Group. In addition, he is a prominent representative of the ZERO movement that was at the basis of a fundamental change in the art world in the 1960s. His work is also linked to Nouveau Réalisme and pop art.

Since the late 1950s, Henderikse has been making work with 'rejects', materials that we use with great love and then throw away. He chooses from just about everything that crosses his path: floating waste from the Rhine, corks and ampoules, later also number plates and coins. These are all things that come at us with an endless stream since the post-war world changed from a manufacturing society to a consumer society. Henderikse's interest in the everyday things is endless. His statement "I am interested in everything that moves people." makes him a kind of anthropologist or ethnographer who shows the intangible in an almost poetic way.

With workshops in Delft, Düsseldorf, Berlin, Curaçao, Antwerp and New York, he completed an international trajectory that immediately gave rise to many international exhibition opportunities. From 2013, Stijn Coppejans has been a curator and supporter of many projects with Henderikse.
