Overview participating exhibitions
UNIVERSUM MMN is an intimate exploration of the unreal state Marcus Peters found himself in at the beginning of last year. Within the space of six months, all the strength flowed out of his body and Peters increasingly lost control over his body. He began to feel both physically and mentally weightless, like a shaky astronaut who after knocking into an obstacle can only move in the direction it sends him in. After numerous medical examinations, Peters was diagnosed with the rare neuromuscular disease of multifocal motor neuropathy. He collects the scans from this unfathomable universe, which evoke apparitions of living organisms, immaterial structures and imaginary means of transport. Peters rearranges them, again and again. Until he finds answers, that raise new questions.
Marcus Peters (Netherlands, 1964) has been a freelance photographer since 1992. He studied at the Koninklijke Academie voor Kunst en Vormgeving in Den Bosch, the Hochschule der Künste Berlin, the Fotovakschool in Apeldoorn, and with photographer Jan Bogaerts. His work has been featured in Trouw, Brabants Dagblad, Taz Berlin and Vrij Nederland. He is the co-founder and a board member of the non-profit organisation SOLOS, a creative platform for young people in Den Bosch.
