Remy Jungerman’s recent work relates to his Surinamese roots and global citizenship. He places traditional materials and objects in different contexts that challenge the established notions of their representation within Western society. Jungerman derives his inspiration from the Maroon culture and the global black diaspora. He is also inspired by Western traditions and developments in the arts, such as the twentieth century Dutch De Stijl movement.
