The Repositions works are investigations into the fundamental performative nature of software. Instead of taking the web document as a page to display static content; text, images, gifs, video, etc. the works have the document itself perform and can be read as document performances. Referencing to Bruce Nauman’s canonical “Wall-Floor Positions” from 1968, the works have the document take new positions in relation to the viewer and the browser’s window frame. Using random algorithms, the documents are infinitely striking new poses. The works have been executed in a series including a blank, blue, black and silver document.

Jan Robert Leegte
https://www.leegte.org
– (born 1973, The Netherlands) started working as an artist on the Internet in 1997. In 2002, he shifted his main focus to implementing digital materials in the context of the physical gallery space, aiming to bridge the online art world with the gallery art world, making prints, sculpture, installations, drawings and projections, connecting to historical movements like land art, minimalism, performance art and conceptualism. As an artist Leegte explores the position of the new materials put forward by the (networked) computer. Photoshop selection marquees, scrollbars, Google Maps, code and software are dissected to understand their ontological nature. His work has been exhibited internationally (Whitechapel Gallery, Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, ZKM Karlsruhe). He is currently represented by Upstream Gallery Amsterdam. Jan Robert Leegte lives and works in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
