Ben Kreukniet is a visual artist based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
His work combines multiple materials and media including light, sound and video. Together, these are used to create digitally altered environments, objects, installations and frameworks for live performance. Each installation is created as an interface through which to explore different ways of seeing – to observe patterns, structures, rhythms and boundaries of embodied experience.
His works often utilize controllable technologies and generative software tools to allow for a process of constant questioning and reacting. Combining carefully designed elements with intuitive processes of exploration – to find underlying logic or paradox and allow space for re-interpretation, unexpected outcomes and intersections.
Before starting his solo practice in 2016, Ben co-directed United Visual Artists, overseeing design and development across the studio’s artistic and performative practice.
Ben has developed installations for the Barbican (London), MONA (Hobart) and the Manchester International Festival. He has created work for brands including Nike, Bottega Veneta, Cartier and Versace, in addition to co-directing tours for Travis Scott, James Blake and Massive Attack.
