Simone Boon (Dutch) lived since early childhood days in ever changing surroundings, such as Borneo, the Netherlands, Venezuela, Belgium, Malaysia, Austria (Vienna). Since 2004 based in Hong Kong. Simone started also a studio in Amsterdam North near NDSM, since 2014.
Living between east and west made her aware of the different ways in which people perceive the world around them, realizing that preconceptions, as well as understanding or misunderstanding are intertwined with the inner paradigms embedded in each of us by the culture of our upbringing.
Perception thus has become an important consideration in Simone’s work which in 2007 was pivotaly expressed in a video projection onto ceramic objects.
Another interest that she explores is how life evolves over time, space and place, and despite dispruption is always in transition, weaving and layering the pieces of life in a trace of fascinating patterns.
Her art journey started with sculpture moving to ceramics and then onto video and photography. Photography has become the main form of expression but the other disciplines are not left behind.
Her latest project concerns human identity from a female perspective, and is related to a philosophy of becoming, taking transitions and movement as the only existing form possible.
