A new book on the work of Suriname-born Dutch artist Remy Jungerman (1959, Moengo Suriname).  In his work artist Remy Jungerman searches for an autonomous visual language that does justice to the cultures of the countries that define him: Suriname, the Netherlands and the United States.

Remy Jungerman. Behind the Forest focuses on his artistic output of the past fifteen years, including new work created especially for his eponymous solo-exhibition at the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam.

In his sculptures, panels, installations, collages and screen prints, Jungerman traces pathways of pattern and imagery from Maroon culture in Suriname, the African diaspora and 20th-Century modernism.

The majority of this book comprises reproductions of his work that have not been published before. Behind the Forest is a welcome addition to Where the River Runs, published by Jap Sam Books in 2019.

Remy Jungerman lives and works in Amsterdam. He attended the Academy for Higher Arts and Cultural Studies, Paramaribo, Suriname, before moving to Amsterdam where he studied at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy. He has exhibited works at 58th Venice Biennial, Dutch Pavilion, Fridman Gallery (New York), Galerie Ron Mandos, (Amsterdam), Prospect3 (New Orleans), Brooklyn Museum (New York), El Museo del Barrio (New York), Stedelijk Museum (Amsterdam), Kunstmuseum The Hague, Centraal Museum (Utrecht), Afrika Museum (Berg en Dal), Museum De Domeinen (Sittard), Museum Arnhem, Rennie Museum (Vancouver), Künstlerhaus Bethanien (Berlin), Malba (Buenos Aires), Musée d'art contemporain de Lyon, Havana Biennale (Cuba) and Museum Bamako (Mali), among others. His work has been featured in numerous publications and acquired by various institutions and private collectors worldwide.
