Marijke Brinkhof, an artist and set designer from Rotterdam has created an immersive environment using drawings and textures in a mixed media installation that deals with her transformed sense of balance and space:
“I am fascinated by movement and sound: the way I feel when my surroundings move and the way I can move with them inside, whilst remaining still. Music is not that interesting for me anymore, but sounds like birdsong or rain make me feel connected with the ground and the vastness above.”
Marijke Brinkhof studied stage design in Tilburg (NL) and art direction at the International Filmschool Cologne (Germany) and co-operated in numerous film and theatre productions in the past 20 years.
She participated in several shows in The Netherlands and Germany and designed room 14B, ‘In Rainbows’, at The Carlton Arms Hotel in 2015.
