Huissen’s work is very precise in defining its own parameters and also in terms of material and composition where each part of the work is designed and made by himself. Yet, they are also very physical and organic, mapping inner feelings and revealing physical reactions through an echo of abstractions. His work is based on the idea that facts per se are not interesting, they only gain meaning when mediated by humans and with the interference of external conditions.
The time-based prints are evidence of an intimate experience, reflecting on a personal encounter based on travelling out of daily life, undressed from social roles or masks. At the same time this event was occurring, at that precise point in time, something else was happening to someone else and the work moderates and connects this simultaneity. By preserving the energy of the moment in that object, the artist’s history links to that of other people’s. In this sense, his body is used as a tool for a correspondence on a meta level, which embodies the wish for completeness and the aspiration for wholeness.
