Wouter Huis (1974, Oosterbroek, Nederland) is a visual artist who works with different media. He currently lives and works in Brussels and Hoensbroek.
In his works Huis shifts the limits of mental and architectural space, the borders of private and public space, the real and the fictive, delving into the elusiveness of almost-invisible ‘random’ details, such as the “touchy” pairing of corners, or the ambiguity of black matter. Huis creates minimal objects, interactive (video) installations, photographs and (performative) screenings, and makes interventions in exhibitions and public spaces. He questions (un)conscious methods of categorization, (re)presentation, projection, inversion, contradiction, coincidence and literality/shifting by focussing on small and (so-called) objective changes in space. Huis works have been shown internationally (Brussels, Amsterdam, Berlin, New York, Stockholm, …).
As an extension to his practice Huis founded Greylight Projects. Greylight Projects started in 2009 as an organization in Hoensbroek dedicated to the production and exhibition of new (visual) art projects. In 2013 Greylight Projects expanded with a branch in a former convent in Brussels where in addition to an exhibition area and a chapel for performances also eighteen studios are located.
