Xandra van der Eijk is a Dutch artist and designer connecting art, ecology, and activism. Van der Eijk has developed a distinct research methodology demonstrated in an extensive body of work in which she incorporates theory, fieldwork, documentation methods, and material development. Through her research, she decentralizes the human perspective by re-interpreting a landscape through its materiality. Each of her projects deals with a key ecological issue and how it is exposed by the passing of time. Van der Eijk’s work has been nominated and awarded multiple times and is extensively exhibited worldwide.
