Guido van der Werve

Guido van der Werve (1977, Papendrecht, NL) is a Dutch filmmaker and artist. He is best known for his video documented performances in which he pushes his own body to the limits; physically testing his endurance, exhaustion and perseverance. Scenes of the artist standing on the North Pole for 24 hours, completing a 1500 kilometer triathlon, setting himself on fire, or being hit by a car on full speed are examples of his extreme actions, that are accompanied by his own musical compositions.
