Tinkebell has a broad and social understanding of art. That is why she wanted to compile a Collection of art that is NOT for hanging above your sofa. Her practice actually knows no boundaries and even if there were any, they would be far outside the traditional art world.
As an artist she infiltrates society and researches frictions and pain points in the prevailing system of values and norms. In doing so, she takes a close and thorough look at everything from how we behave, to the way we live, and from the way we interact, to our position with regard to the wellbeing of animals, the environment, the future of our food, the use of (social) media, refugee frameworks, politics, the clothing industry, multiculturalism, communication problems, distribution of (fake) news, life in Fukushima since the 2011 nuclear disaster and more.
Tinkebell is apt at hacking people's brains and influencing their behaviour through her findings and artistic expressions. Tinkebell: "Maybe I come across as a magician in the field of communication strategy. But I am a visual artist in the broad sense of the word: I exhibit, organize and participate in socio-cultural projects, make films, give lectures, participate in debates, work out strategies to solve problems (Tinkebell is one of the strategists behind the 'children's pardon', ed.), work as a guest lecturer at various art academies and write books and columns.
As should be clear by now, Tinkebell's vision of art extends well beyond the walls of a studio, a house, a gallery or a museum. That is why she created a Collection of art for GalleryViewer that may not match with your curtains, but that can take you out of your comfort zone. And that's what art is about, according to Tinkebell.
