Ingrid van der Hoeven

In her sculptures Ingrid van der Hoeven (1962), of Indonesian descent herself, focuses on the image of the Asian woman, who has freed herself from her traditional, submissive position and developed into an alert, self-confident woman. From the waist up her sculptures rise from the ground. Their posture is strong and proud, as well as modest and subdued, frequently their heads are directed upwards. The sculptures are built up from various layers of natural-coloured MDF, soft board, and more recently polyurethane.

The seams between the layers are filled with pigment coloured glue that emphasizes the curves of the women and give the sculptures vitality and definition. Ingrid van der Hoeven finds the visual material for her work in Asian fashion magazines and calendars, but also in daily life on the streets of Rotterdam, where a fusion of cultures is to be seen. In the studio she photographs herself in the postures of the Asian models. She thus becomes the starting point of the sculptures and examines at the same time her own identity as a Dutch woman of a mixed cultural background.
