In her work, Karin Arink deals with the body that reveals/conceals the self, the physical encounter with the other and – as a mother herself – the body as a place for the other. In this visual exploration of what the 'self' might be, rather than approaching the self as a fixed entity, Arink sees it as a jumble of influences and experiences. Something that, depending on the situation, is continuously in a state of flux. Through the body, the visible container of the individual, the innermost 'I', the 'self' can manifest and show itself to the other. Without evolving into realistic bodies, Arink's works articulate a spectrum of physical, mental, emotional and social aspects. For this, the artist utilizes and experiments with various media including photo cut-outs and manipulations, creating work from clay or stitched fabric, spatial drawings made from textiles and adhesive plastic foil, animations and text-based works. The titles are also part of the art work.
Karin Arink was resident artist at the Rijksakademie in 1990-1992.
She won the first prize of the 1992 Prix de Rome (NL).
