Irene is an Amsterdam based artist who graduated in fine arts at Rietveld Academy in 2020. Her sculptural and spacial installations are material oriented. Their process of becoming is a play between visual references to daily encounters, material aesthetics and personal engagement with the material by handcraft and labour intense interventions.They try to disrupt proportions by which we usually understand our relations toward other people or objects and the spaces in which they exist.
