Xandra van der Eijk

Xandra van der Eijk, Netherlands (1985). Since starting the program, Xandra has developed a fascination for analog, tactile work. Constantly driven by the idea of structure, every work contains contradiction between emotion/aesthetics and (generated) data- cycles or strict systems.

Graduating graphic design in 2008 with a graphic score and interactive performance, Xandra decided to continue her research in image and sound as an ArtScientist. For her work she received the Paul Schuitema-prize and participated in many festivals and collaborations. Hosts include: Hong Kong Business of Designweek, Theater Zeebelt, Theater de Brakke Grond, Scheltema, Theater Frascati  and others.

Her final work shows the process of decay and the human incapability to overcome it. It is a spacious, analog installation with a 4-day cycle, guided by a very slow, continuous performance of assisting the installation in order for it to work, resulting in strong graphic, 4m long prints.
