Remco Torenbosch (NL, 1982) lives and works in Amsterdam. He studied at the Willem de Kooning Academy Rotterdam and the Universität der Künste Berlin and is currently an artist in residence at the Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten in Amsterdam (2018-2019).
Central to his practice is the trans-historical and socio-economic relationship between physical- and nonphysical methods of production. His work is rooted in research and conceptual frameworks that address the abstract and geopolitical connotations of materials and processes. Throughout his practice of appropriation and adaption, the works become conductors to the trans-historical conditions under which they were extracted, produced or distributed.
His work has been shown at Victoria and Albert Museum London (UK), Kunsthalle Wien (AT), Kunsthaus Zurich (CH), CAC Parc Saint Léger (FR), GAMeC Bergamo (IT), Temporary Gallery Cologne (DE), de Vleeshal Middelburg (NL); and De Appel Amsterdam (NL). In 2013 he was nominated for the Prix de Rome (NL).
Torenbosch is represented in collections including GAMeC – Museum for Modern and Contemporary Art, Bergamo (IT), Banca Popolare di Bergami, Bergamo (IT), De Vleeshal, Middelburg (NL) , Robeco (NL) and Nogueras Blanchard, Barcelona (ES).
