NYNKE KOSTER

NYNKE KOSTER

Nynke Koster (1986) is an artist operating in the nebulous space somewhere between autonomous art and contemporary design. In her work, she attempts to reinvigorate the ornament. By shifting perspectives and using unexpected materials, Nynke is able to reinterpret the tales these decorative capsules of history try to tell. She has created a set of semi-practical aesthetic objects deeply grounded in art history but simultaneously very much in touch with contemporary desires.
