Glenn Plaisier (b. 1987 - The Netherlands) is a visual artist working with ideas surrounding jokes and disappointments. His practice spreads across a wide variety of materials creating conceptual interventions, objects and texts, focussing the gaze towards paradoxical or ironic arrangements of every day objects or social tendencies. Rooted in Graphic design, educated as a painter he searches to be on point in off spaces and sways between white cubes and obscured night clubs.
He currently lives and works in the former German Democratic Republic.
