Bonne Knibbe

Bonne Knibbe grew up in the south of the Netherlands, walking, cycling and riding horses through the hills. Moving to the flat, square-shaped, human-created landscape of The Hague and its surroundings was a profound change.

When a space changes physically, it also changes the way we feel and move through said space. A space can make one feel comfortable and free, as well as it can threaten and make one feel imprisoned.

The changes in a surrounding space and how our bodies react to them became the main field of research for Bonne’s work. Her installations result in a kinetically moved space: The sound of movement and friction are amplified and work together with lighting to bring the space to life.
