Esper Postma (1988) explores the way that forms of cultural heritage are employed to construct narratives of class, gender, and belonging. His installations often transpose and re-contextualise historical objects, monuments and architecture as a means of liberating them from institutionalised history and investing them with subversive agency.
Postma studied at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam and the Städelschule in Frankfurt am Main. In 2019–2020 he took part in the Berlin Program for Artists (BPA). Recent solo exhibitions include “Salome“ at the Westfälischer Kunstverein, Münster (2019) and “Rebis“ at Stadtmuseum Lindau (2018). He currently is a resident at Villa Romana in Florence.
