More information about the speaker:
The art of Berend Strik, who lives in Amsterdam, is very diverse and encompasses various techniques. He does not focus on just one medium, but rather operates on the borders of visual art, incorporating embroidery, video, photography and architecture in his work. Strik became known internationally in the 1990s with his embroidery work, that springs from a temptation of the usual and the everyday. His work has been exhibited around the world and acquired by renowned museums and collections. Strik’s most recent exhibitions in 2011 are: Crushed, Stitched and Transfixed, Oslo Museum, Gallery IKM, Norway en Tumbled Topics, Stephane Simoens Contemporary Fine Art, Knokke-Zoute, Belgium. In 1994, Strik had a solo exhibition at the Stedelijk entitled Sadness, Sluices, Mermaids, Delay.
