Imke Zeinstra is a Dutch performance artist who lives in Berlin. In 2015, she graduated from AKV| St. Joost Breda in Fine Arts. She creates images that capture every day while alluding to the past.

Finding inspiration in advertisements as well as old myths, her playful commentary demands the question: What does it mean to be female? Perhaps it’s not even a question of being female but of being human. By exposing the psychological or even the emotional against the rational, her performances reveal the universal desire to be loved. She represents the inner struggle between the desire to be gracious and admired, and the destructive side that breaks through that obsession again. Her work depicts a pleasurable beauty that slowly unfolds to the powerlessness that balances between horror and pleasure.
