Rini Brakkee (1983) and lives and works in Amsterdam. She graduated from the Gerrit Rietveld Academie, department of Fine Art. She is interested in existential crises, and the strange things people do to find a solution to them. In her art she explores paradoxical concepts like “choosing to believe”, “introspection” or “giving meaning”. She makes drawings, sculpture, installations, video, text and collage. Her work is exhibited regularly and her matchbox sized artist book “de voegen de stenen de voegen” is part of the Voix Editions collection. She recently started painting again and currently works on a series about the beauty and horror of reality television.
Rini Brakkee owns a studio for artistic courses and workshops in Amsterdam West (de Baarsjes). She likes to share her knowledge and enthusiasm for drawing, painting, crafts and poetry with her students. Visit the website: www.groetenvanmarc.nl
On average people look no more than 30 seconds at an artwork. Rini means to change that one artwork at a time. Under her guidance a group of participants looks carefully at the formal and associative aspects of a work and discover it’s hidden meanings in ca. 45 minutes.
