ENGELEN specialises in social oriented performances, video and iPhone photography. Her topics of interest rotate round communication and self-development.

KIM ENGELEN: “My art arises out of my own shortcomings in connecting with others. In an allegorical way I work with these shortcomings. In the meeting (or absence of meeting) with others through conscious reflection, development or deterioration can take place. More positively speaking or ideally, my artworks are about self-development, critical thinking and humanity.

The “Bridge-Performances” are one of my ongoing art projects. These are mostly temporary encounters of co-creating. To me the bridge is a wonderful tool to work with, it stands as a metaphor symbolizing connection, process and transition.”
