Thomas Kuijpers works as an image-researcher in his artistic practise. He immediately analyses and categorises almost every image he encounters, what usually evokes only a rational reaction. However, a written story affects him differently and is able to evoke an emotional response. For the series of images under the title of Decor_ Kuijpers deleted the personas from landscapes derived from the most repulsive propaganda videos of IS. Kuijpers appropriates the images by asking writers and poets to fill these ‘decors’ with alternatieve tales. This way he researches the tension between a rational and emotional response, as well as the meaning of ownership.
