Gabriel Lester

Gabriel Lester

Gabriel Lester (1972) is a Dutch artist who uses a diversity of media to construct environments which are characterised by a powerful narrative quality. In his earlier work this led Lester to the composition of prose and electronic music.
After his subsequent studies in film and, finally, visual arts, Lester’s work acquired a more cinematographic quality, even without the use of video or film.

HORST invited Gabriel Lester because of his strength in site-specific work. The narrative element lends an intriguing perspective on the picturesque castle site. What is more: the inspiration for his earlier work clearly demonstrates a strong affinity with electronic music.
