KARIN VAN PINXTEREN 

1967, Lives and works in Heeswijk 

 

In her work van Pinxteren basically seeks out perspectives of the gaze and its focus set within relational structures. Subsequently, and more specific, she explores these perspectives in settings that allow for multiple angles of vision and parallel focus points as she plays this field’s symbolic order. Here, she explores and identifies both the subject’s and the setting’s relational position along the parameters of language, spatial settings and language carried. In sum, her work relates the fullness of our daily theatre as a hybrid-reading biotope: led insistently to enact itself according to cultivated promises of modernity. Karin van Pinxteren studied Graphic Design and Architectural Design and gradually entered the field of art to become the full-on artistic practitioner she is today.
