Natasja van der Meer
Natasja van der Meer is a Dutch multimedia artist born in 1969. She is best known for the incorporation of existing objects to create playful, humorous sculptures. A recurring source of inspiration for her motives is the innocence and curiosity of childhood. Her works mostly represent scaled versions of existing, smaller objects, evoking a sense of alienation, and confusion. For instance, Van der Meer uses beads as three-dimensional pixels to create hanging sculptures. Her style is best described by simplicity and clarity. Her works have been widely exhibited in the Netherlands and abroad, like the Gemeentemuseum in the Hague and Market Art + Design Art fair in Hamptons, USA.
