WORK / Visual artist Tineke van Veen researches and visualizes in her practice the concept of safety. Safety related to vulnerable situations in a personal and in a broader intercultural context. What kind of different cultural values open up new perspectives?

In her recent work she explores safety correlated with the disturbed relationship between humans and the environment. She examines the ability of film and photography to depict the changed perspective.

Tineke van Veen visualizes the concept of safety in objects, installations, film and photography or a combination of these practices. At the one hand the work is self-reflective and at the other hand it invites the spectator to reflect on his own position.
