Feiko Beckers, teacher

Feiko Beckers (Witmarsum, the Netherlands °1983) is a Dutch visual artist. He was artist in residence at the Rijksakademie in Amsterdam in 2010-2011. In 2013 he was a resident at Palais de Tokyo in Paris. 

He works with everyday histories based on events from his own life, stories about failures, accidents or embarrassing situations that he has personally experienced. His work seeks answers to the unexpected, merciless character of unfortunate events. With video, performance, installations and text, he constructs narratives that are unexpectedly interrupted, their determined and unavoidable failure impending and self-evident. 

His work has been exhibited at De Appel, Amsterdam; Palais de Tokyo, Paris; Beursschouwburg, Brussel; Tenderpixel, Londen; Museum Kranenburg, Bergen; ; STUK, Leuven; Kunstverein Braunschweig; Fries Museum, Leeuwarden and at Gallery Stigter van Doesburg, Amsterdam.
