Bregje Sliepenbeek

Bregje Sliepenbeek (1986), born in Breda and currently living and working in The Netherlands.

 

Bregje studied jewellery design at the Rietveld Academy but instead of making body related pieces her metal creations consist of large but lightweight wall hangings.

 The process of making and a high appreciation of the crafts is significant in Bregje her work. A trance-like state of mind, a sensitive discourse with material, endless repetition.

 She is interested in shifting the characteristics of a material, treating her material of choice with a tactile approach, transforming firm metal into fluid and moving objects. 

The objects are never fixed but in transition, they respond to light and movement by air currents.
