Renée van Trier kneads new language. It’s overwhelming, it’s a lot, it’s loud and sometimes it’s not that pretty.
A contrast, falsely naive, an intelligent mixture of creativity and madness, a true manifesto for art without inhibitions.
The fearlessness to allow the silence to come forth, which can be frightening.
Renée van Trier (NL 1983) graduated from St. Joost Breda in 2008 and the Sandberg Institute Amsterdam in 2010.

‘The drama and ambiguity that makes Van Trier’s work debatable is a strong asset in the mediocre landscape of the current Dutch art playground.’
