Remy Jungerman, a Netherlands based multi-media artist, is the Winter 2017 artist in residence at HVCCA. Born 1959 in the small Maroon community of Moengo in Surinam, on the northern Atlantic coast of South America, Jungerman has, for the last two and a half decades, made his home in the Netherlands. His work is an intersection between the African textile designs of Surinam and Dutch artists of the De Stijl movement, including Mondrian. Afro-Surinamese spirituality, or Winti, is his dominant theme.
