Ymke Vertelman (1991) graduated from the Royal Academy of Art The Hague (KABK) in 2017, department of Interior Architecture & Furniture Design.

Her fascination with hidden phenomena, like the shrinking and growing of personal space, or temporary structures that arise in nature are recurring elements in her work. With these elements she explores the way in which body language gives meaning to our perception of space. Or to make us aware of our relationship with the more natural rhythms that exist all around us.

'Im working on an archive / library where I capture structures, traces, textures and patterns that are often transitory or temporary. It can be small or big, made accidentally by people or naturally formed by nature. I use this archive to create new work'.
