The work of Kaspar Dejong is in line with the semiotic tradition exploring and studying signs and symbols as a significant part of communication. ‘I tend to re-use existing imagery and objects from my daily surrounding and deconstruct these objects and images in such a way that their signals lose meaning and/or their authority and original function is being questioned.’
