ANNEMARIE VAN SPLUNTER

AnneMarie van Splunter is a visual artist from Amsterdam. Her art practice has many appearances: video projects like A Day Such As This where children reveal a view of Amsterdam or Amman from their window as they open their curtains in the morning; ephemeral installations like Salina, a floor relief made of 3,800 kilo of salt; and public artworks such as monumental concrete playgrounds, steel park gates or a citypark bench made of wood and local reed that constitutes a shared environment for humans and insects. An architectural approach informed by mathematical patterns mostly employing curved forms and meticulous use of tactile materials characterises AnneMarie’s work that appeals to the sensory perception of the spectator, evoking an immaterial idea of lightness and serenity. Commissioners include the Dowse Art Museum in New Zealand and the Dutch Government Buildings Agency.
