AMSTERDAM.- This summer Foam is presenting a series of new work by Marnix Goossens (born Leeuwarden, 1967) in the exhibition Yonder. In Yonder Goossens concentrates on surrogate nature in slightly run-down interiors, showing man's secret yearnings for exotic destinations and snow-covered mountains in the form of palm-print wallpaper and decorative posters. The exhibition features a combination of Goossens' photographs combined with a short video.

Nature forms a constant source of inspiration for Goossens, yet he makes no use of spectacular panoramic views or untouched wildernesses. Instead he uses tiles with plant motifs, wood grain plastic self-adhesive film and flowery wallpaper as a means of escaping the claustrophobic interior of the house. Photographs showing strange corners and reproductions are interspersed with photographs of windows through which light comes streaming in, also bringing a suggestion of the lightness of our being.

Goossens manages to find the beauty in the smallest details of the everyday world around us. He registers commonplace, almost boring objects, but with the aid of his technical camera he turns them into something special, recording details almost too small to see with the naked eye. The perfect composition, profusion of details, nuances in colour, fitting frame and appropriate lighting for each shot are chosen with care, enabling him to give his own unique view of the unexpected side of otherwise ordinary places.

Work by Marnix Goossens has featured in national and international exhibitions in locations such as Foam, the Stedelijk Museum (Amsterdam), Huis Marseille (Amsterdam), Maison Européenne de la Photographie (Paris) and The Art Institute of Chicago. He has published several photo books, including Regarding Nature (2001), Deep Light (2006) and Yonder (2013). His work is featured in collections in the Netherlands and abroad.

The exhibition Yonder by Marnix Goossens is sponsored by the Mondriaanfonds. The book: Yonder, published by Roma Publications, designed by Remco van Bladel and with text from Maria Barnas, will accompany the exhibition [132 pagina's, 20 x 28cm, hardcover, ISBN 9789077459997 price €32,-, special edition €200,-].

Yonder by Marnix Goossens can be seen from 19 July - 6 October 2013 at Foam.
