TINEKE VAN DER EECKEN: TRIBUTARIES

TOURING WITH ART ON THE MOVE 2024-25

Contact Us

Tributaries explores the fibres of flora, fauna, and human systems.

It includes jewellery, small fine metal sculptures, and objects formed by corrosion casting, a process by which resin is injected into animal organs and other biological systems to form moulds of internal spaces. 

These objects are placed in dialogue with photographic images and poetry that document the thrum of life and death in environmental arterial systems, connecting root, river, skeleton, and vein. Tributaries is both a contemporary memento mori and a reminder of the constantly changing states of all organic matter, including our own bodies – a testament to the interconnection of human, animal and environment.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Image credit: Tineke Van der Eecken. Photography by Mark Tweedie

Tineke Van der Eecken is a Belgian-born, Australian artist whose practice explores narratives of place. From her geographical and biological roots in Belgium to her home in Western Australia on the rim of the vast Indian Ocean, the scope of her narrative takes in oceans, wetlands and ancient reefs, then delves deeply inward to the internal places of physical bodies. Her concepts are articulated through exceptionally crafted jewellery and sculptures, and objects that sit between these categories, as well as photography.

Tineke was introduced to corrosion casting as an Artist in Residence at SymbioticA at the University of Western Australia in 2012, and was recently awarded a Minderoo Foundation Artist Fund grant to experiment with the technique at the Minderoo Exmouth Research Laboratory. She has exhibited widely and is also a published author and the President of the Jewellers and Metalsmiths Group of Western Australia. Tributaries was originally presented at Mundaring Art Centre as part of the 2021 Indian Ocean Craft Triennial (IOTA).
