Space is my mold

 

WELCOME TO NYNKE KOSTER

 

The work of Nynke Koster balances on the border between design and autonomous work. 'The space around me is my mould'. She finds these molds in unique spaces and structures of buildings and bodies.  She takes parts of these embracing places with her. 'They are my 3D memories'. Because of here love for craftmenship each work is an unique and personal object. 

'Something that exists to give new life. It is to connect to a place, take it with me and giving it back to others'. The wonder of the history of places takes things literally closer. The traces of men live on for years. She wants to pass these tangible and immaterial relics from the past on to future generations. The best way to do this is in the world of visual art and design

Athena - Palace of Soestdijk The Soestdijk Palace, permanently inhabited from 1937, when Princess Juliana and Prince Bernhard took up the residence after their marriage. The palace is now uninhabited and is looking for a new use for this beautiful building. On June 21 opened the new exhibition called 'Ball' in the palace. About 35 talented artists from the Netherlands have been asked to create a work for the palace. I'm honored to share that my assignment takes place in the beautiful Stuczaal.
