TAMARA DEES, 1971, born in Terneuzen 

The work of Tamara Dees is about experiencing and investigating what it is like to be small in a big world – often the world of shipping. In recent years she has repeatedly investigated the actual size of ships, as well as the actual size of various ‘big’ works of art. Although ships are a recurrent feature of her work, she is more interested in what happens alongside the nautical world. How big are ships, actually, and what happens if you use them for a quite unintended purpose? Turned upside down, or broken, they become something very different. Tamara Dees studied sculpture at the Maastricht Academy of Fine Arts and Design and Visual Arts at the Post Sint Joost Academy in Breda. Her work has been purchased by the Sanders-Ten Holte collection, Woongoed Zeeuws Vlaanderen, the Vlissingen art library and various private collections. It has also been commissioned for temporary exhibitions in public space by clients including the Province of Limburg/Roermond Municipal Museum and the Province of Zeeland Visual Arts Centre (CBK Zeeland).
