Within his practice, Lennart de Neef is involved in a long-term visual research in which he investigates the conflict between a virtually designed “hyper reality” and the way in which this virtual world is physically expressed. Playing with this idea by, for example, processing wood in such a way that it looks as if it were ceramic tiles, he twists our perception. For Unfair™ De Neef was inspired by the artificial world of film sets. He started developing objects that could come from warehouses combined with objects of film sets of the past. Many refer to images from the public space; yet seem to reflect a public space from an alternate reality.
