Marjan Teeuwen: Crammed Spaces

An anxious feeling infiltrates my chest a bit when looking at Dutch artist Marjan Teeuwen’s photographs, and yet I find it hard not to be pulled in. These crammed spaces that evoke a sense of claustrophobia and obsession are so jam-packed with objects that in some cases ceilings, floors and walls are hardly recognizable. Some of the photos have the objects set up by function, others by texture and color, but all have them packed in creating an oppressive and confined feeling. The photo series have titles like Archives and Destroyed House, that is if the free translator I used translated correctly.

Kind of crazy, but kind of cool, also.
