Video: studio visit with Satijn Panyigay

With this video, we’re launching a series of artist studio visits — to get updates on their newest work and insights into the creative process. We’ve teamed up with our artists to make these short films and show the ‘behind-the-scenes’ of their practice.



Satijn Panyigay talks about her artistic motivation and style, bridging together her older and newer work. Satijn gives a glimpse of her overall aesthetic tone and upcoming series from the larger project Twilight Zone.

Panyigay’s work has a clear approach and specific themes: transience, emptiness, solitude. She is fascinated by the human mind and with her aesthetic eye, she shows the beauty of both the light and the dark. Her photographs are mysterious, sometimes eerie, melancholic, and subtle. The work-in-progress Twilight Zone is focused on capturing the character of the empty exhibition spaces of leading Dutch museums that display contemporary art by photographing them between the shows. Satijn has already photographed the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen – the series was presented at our gallery this autumn. The next museum in this project is the Kröller-Müller Museum, and the series has not been released yet.
