Ingrid van der Hoeven is a sculptor who makes work that is layered; literally. Glued together female figures are composed of sheets, in which with saw cuts they are ‘dressed’. The glue seam between layers of different materials and densities remains visible, accentuating the women’s curves, energy and softness. Using her own body in photographs as a building block for poses, she looks for ways to bring in her own identity as a Dutch artist with a mixed cultural background.
Ingrid van der Hoeven (1962) is a sculptor who lives and works in Rotterdam and graduated from the Academy of Visual Arts Rotterdam in 1988. Van der Hoeven has recently exhibited in the Netherlands at Galerie van den Berge in Goes, Galerie Frank Welkenhuysen in Utrecht and Smith Vissers Galerie in Amsterdam. Every year, Van der Hoeven also participates in Art A’dam and PAN Amsterdam. Her works can be found in various corporate and private collections in the Netherlands and in Belgium.
