artist nominated by BINNA CHOI


1988 · Venray, The Netherlands

In her work, the artist explores links between abstraction, perception, language, and structures through the historiography of abstraction in different fields: starting with early modernism in art and most recently philosophy and activism. In those fields she examines its discursive and narrative gaps and openings through sculptures, photograms and fictional conversations between under-recognized and unrecognized (female) key figures. She has shown her work at: P/////AKT, Amsterdam (2016); Ellen de Bruijne Projects, Amsterdam (2015); and Archipelago, Hordaland Kunstsenter, Bergen (2015). Riet Wijnen lives and works in Amsterdam.
