Mark van Overeem Is fascinated by how our perceprion influences our image of the visual or social world around us. To this end, he dissects and redefines physical and mental space by means of various techniques (painting, photography, installation), often causing a disorienting experience for the viewer. Mark van Overeem studied at the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague. He has exhibited at Heden in The Hague (2008), AKKUH in Hengelo (2009), Gallery Marion de Cannière in Antwerp (2011), the Mondriaanhuis in Amersfoort (2011), Stedelijk Museum Zwolle (2012), Kunstruimte 09 Groningen (2012). ), De Vishal Haarlem 2012). In 2015 he built In het GEM, The Hague, the interactive installation “A Wish in Return”, based on a stay in Israel. Van Overeem's work can be found in many private collections and in company collections of e.g. he ABP, AKZO-NOBEL, Houthoff Buruma, Aegon and the Verbeke Foundation (B). His work “In one hour” is  based on the space-filling, site-specific installation he built in 2013 on the occasion of the opening of the new building of the Ministries of the Interior and Kingdom Relations and of Security and Justice.
