Is this the type of work you do?

  • Jan Pötter / Fine art

‘Is this the type of work you do?’ was the response Jan Pötter’s (Fine Art) graduation project evoked from some of his fellow student. “They were surprised. I take it as a complement, because at a certain level I want my work to surprise and unsettle people. This year, the painter Koen Vermeule fulfilled the role of external examiner (who assesses the graduation projects). He thought my work was really clear. I’d like to continue making ‘unexpected’ pieces and deliberately break with my own and with the audience’s expectations.”
