info     about    



Tara-Eva Kuijpers Wentink (1996) is a Dutch artist who is based in Amsterdam. She graduated in Fine Arts at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie Amsterdam in 2020 and completetd her master in sculpture at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerpen. Her work focusses on developing a sculptural organic alphabet. She creates sculptures and installations that are abstractions of organic shapes: human organs and body parts. In her installations there exists a tension between the inside and outside of the body. They relate to the beauty and the horror of the complex human physicality and psyche. She is mainly interested in the genderless beauty of body shapes and the mystery of organisms growing into ethereal beings. Her self coincides with the act of creating. Her work has a tactile apearance. She works with sensitive materials such as clay, paper-maché, cement or textiles; materials that are easily molded by using the motions of her own body. Her installations influence the atmosphere in a room, they balance between spatial and sculptural and they make the viewer enter another dimension.
