Trained as a draughtsman at the HKU University of the Arts, Dutch artist Jorrit Paaijmans (1979) explores the drawing discipline in both theory and practice. Starting from conceptual art, his oeuvre consists of drawings, kinetic installations and performances. Paaijmans’ artistic practice is an ongoing investigation into the field of tension between the human and the machine. The movements of the human hand and the machine are examined, played off against each other, and brought together. His experimental research investigates the boundaries of the drawing discipline and offers new perspectives on the physical relationship between human, labor and automation in today's technological society.
