BIOGRAPHY REMY JUNGERMAN(1959) was born in Moengo, Suriname and has lived in Amsterdam since 1990. As a sculptor/ mixed media artist his recent work is intrinsically related to his Surinamese origins and is centered on global citizenship in today’s society. Jungerman uses collages, sculptures and installations to show cultural critique(s) of the local and the global, the internal and the external. Traditional materials and objects are placed in different contexts that challenge the established notions of their representation within Western society.
Jungerman gets his inspiration from Afro-religious elements of the traditional Maroon culture in Suriname and the Diaspora. At the same time he is also inspired by Western trends in art and modern communication technology.
He first studied art at the Academy for Higher Arts and Cultural Studies, Paramaribo (Suriname). After moving to Amsterdam in 1990 he studied at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy. Since his first group exhibition in the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam, Jungerman has participated in several solo and group exhibitions worldwide. His work has also been published in numerous publications worldwide. In 2008 he received the Fritschy Culture Award from the Museum het Domein, Sittard The Netherlands.

Various institutions and private collectors worldwide among which have acquired his work: Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, Museum Het Domein Sittard, Zeeuws Museum Middelburg, Museum de Paviljoens Almere, NAI Rotterdam, Fries Museum Leeuwarden, Africa Museum Berg en Dal, Museum Arnhem, Rennie Collection Vancouver, Art In Embassies, US Department of State, Suriname, ABN AMRO Collection, NL
