Katrien Vermeire

The Netherlands, Amsterdam Kahmann Gallery

Katrien Vermeire (1979) studied photography at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Ghent. The winner of the 4th annual Fine Arts Award of the Province of West-Flanders (BE) in 2002, she has been working as an independent artist ever since and has developed a distinctive style that is not only highly poetic but also very varied and layered. Her work has been exhibited in numerous galleries and museums both in Belgium and abroad, including a dual exhibition with Hans Op de Beeck and (solo) exhibitions at Museum M in Leuven and FOAM Amsterdam. Her photo and film project The Wave, co-directed with Belgian visual artist Sarah Vanagt, premiered at the 18th Biennale of Sydney in 2012.
