About the Artists

1968 , Germany

Born in 1968 Lives and works in Amsterdam. Dutch artist, Boris Tellegen's installations or his wood and paper collages suggest a constructed universe where the intersection between the real and the conceptual is anchored in a geometrical style based on reversed perspectives. During the 1980s, Delta (his pseudonym in the streets) spent much of his time deconstructing and reforming the letters of his tag, working with the rigour forged during his time as an engineering student. His fractured lettering pointed towards a future governed by the dual notions of phoney chaos within controlled order. Boris Tellegen soon abandoned the streets, the setting for his first works, in favour of the enclosed universe of the exhibition space. Words became his surface and letters faded from view in favor of direction and material in works where light plays across the dimensions to offer new readings of his intricate reliefs.
