Jeroen Eisinga (1966) studied at the School of Arts in Arnhem and at the Rijksakademie in Amsterdam. He lives and works as a visual artist in Rotterdam.
Jeroen Eisinga is an artist who, with his work, very clearly ventures into the area between film, video and visual art, and indisputably proves how little distance there is between these disciplines. With the greatest ease and confidence, he swings from the conventions and traditional characteristics of one medium to those of another. In his short 16mm films, he uses a specifically cinematic language to tell his seemingly simple stories. The unexpected turns are typical of the slightly absurdist stories of the freethinker Eisinga. Using parody and light-hearted seriousness, he plays with the viewer's expectations.
