Peggy Franck

Peggy Franck (Zevenaar, 1978), lives and works in Amsterdam. The artist is known for her spatial investigations that combine photography, painting and site-specific installations. Franck’s characteristic brushstrokes represent the result of a longer and less visible process, as these function as gestures and visualizations of the artist’s inner world, arranging themselves on paper, wood, objects and walls, giving the impression of being alive, in constant dialogue and movement. His works have been exhibited at: Arcade, London; Frans Hals Museum, Haarlem; FOAM, Amsterdam; Stigter Van Doesburg, Amsterdam; OUTPOST, Norwich; Künstlerhaus Bethaniën, Berlin; Westfälischer Kunstverein, Munich; Raum für zeitgenössische Fotografie, Coalmine, Winterthur; Manifesta Foundation, Amsterdam; Middlemarch, Brussels; Crawford Art Gallery, Cork; Photographers Gallery, London; (SIC), Brussels; Dorothea Schlüter, Hamburg. Franck has also participated in artist residencies at the Rijksakademie, Amsterdam, and Künstlerhaus Bethaniën, Berlin.
