tara-eva kuijpers wentink
Born and raised in Amsterdam, Tara-Eva Kuijpers Wentink (1996) completed her Bachelors in Fine Arts at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie Amsterdam in 2020. During her Bachelors she participated in an exchange program at Pratt Institute NYC in 2018. In 2022 she completed her Master program in Sculpture at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerpen.
The practice of Tara-Eva Kuijpers Wentink evolves around an exploration of abstracted and a-morph shapes that refer to the physicality of the inside of the human body and its tissues. In her sculptural installations she shows a translation of a growing or expanding organism that influences the atmosphere in the room and welcomes the viewer to step into a glimpse of another world. The colors used in the installations emphasize a fleshy softness, this soft appearance is explored in the use of different materials and tactilities.
In 2021 Tara-Eva participated with her work Astra in the show ALL INN in het Hem in Zaandam and was nominated for the Dutch ceramic award Keramiekprijs de Kei.
