Krist Gruijthuijsen (Netherlands)

Krist Gruijthuijsen (Netherlands) Alan (a memoir), 2007 In Gruijthuijsen’s body of work, the in-depth investigation of personas such as Alan Abel’s underscores the artist’s interest in the relation between construction of myth, its process, and the fluctuating role of the contemporary artist. In this film, slow environmental shots of Abel’s current surroundings support the voice of the 82-year-old protagonist as he reads a letter that he wrote at age 16 describing his life so far and his future goals. This narration is followed by the reading of his obituary, recalling Abel’s last fictional action, when he placed his obituary in the New York Times. Gruijthuijsen’s practice is centered on the structuring of the artist within the curatorial position. As artist and curator, his work examines from a historical perspective the role of the artist and the necessity to produce an image, or how an artist positions himself in relation to a curator (or visa versa). The recourse to archives and mythologized or mystified forms are amongst the strategies he employs.
