Peter Vink makes works that are site-specific. He incorporates the specific characteristics of the space or environment, aiming to emphasise or strengthen what is present in order to influence and highlight our experience of the site. By breaking through our conditioned perception, Vink hopes to change the way people experience their environment.




Peter Vink [De Bilt, 1974] studied at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam. He has exhibited on an international level and has realised various art commissions in the public domain. For the Government Buildings Agency [Rijksgebouwendienst] he created a work for the joint depot of Naturalis, Museum Boerhaave and the Dutch National Museum of Antiquities [RMO] in Leiden. Commissioned by Skor, he has recently realised a light installation in Enschede. Peter Vink was artist in residence at Platform China, Beijing, China Foundation for Visual Arts, Design and Architecture.
