Christiaan Bastiaans travels around the world and demonstrates great commitment to the consequences of great social problems, such as war and it’s victims. In Bastiaans’ work borders and boundlessness reverberate in ever-changing forms, some lucid and gentle, others exhilarating or threatening. Through it all the work is permeated by a solemn beauty.

"Bastiaans does not spoon-feed the audience explanations of the associations and experiences of the semi-conscious dying. It’s not necessary: dying is one of the most private, individual moments of our lives.
And therefore also one of the most terrifying."
