BIOLOGICAL ARTS

Since her SymbioticA residency in 2011, where the artist explored the morphology of mouse lungs, Tineke has been incorporating corrosion casting in her creative process. The technique is similar to the techniques used by Gunther Von Haegen in his 'Body World' and allows the soft tissue of a body to be presented. In 2020 the artist worked with the Museum of Animal Morphology at the University of Ghent, Belgium to create and work with more corrosion casts.
