Paul Kooiker’s fascination for voyeurism, shame and fetishism leads to series of images full of references to surrealism. This time the donkey plays a central role, also an important motif in the work of surrealists such as Dalí and Buñuel. The title of Kooiker’s publication, The Rumour, is a nod to Moesman’s famous painting The Rumour that was missing in the exhibition The Tears of Eros in Centraal Museum in Utrecht in 2020. The series of works in the publication was (with the support of the Mondrian Foundation) especially made for this show that was focussing on the Utrecht surrealist artist Moesman.

Paul Kooiker (born 1964, Rotterdam) studied at the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague and the Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten in Amsterdam (1990-1992). Kooiker was awarded the Prix-de-Rome Photography in 1996 and the A. Roland Holst Award for his oeuvre in 2009. Foam previously hosted a solo exhibition of his autonomous work in 2006, under the title Paradise Twenty-One. Kooiker’s works have been displayed in countless solo and group exhibitions in the Netherlands and abroad, including Museum Folkwang, Essen (2021/22, DE); Museum Voorlinden, Wassenaar (2020, NL); Centraal Museum, Utrecht (2020, NL); FOMU Fotomuseum, Antwerp (2018, BE); Fotomuseum Den Haag (2014, NL); and Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, Rotterdam (2009, NL). Furthermore, his works can be found in a great many international collections, both public and private. Paul Kooiker is represented by tegenboschvanvreden (NL) and Galerie Zink (DE).
His exhibition FASHION can be seen in Foam until 12 February 2023.
