Zindzi Zwietering (1992, Amsterdam) is an artist working from Amsterdam, The Netherlands. She holds a BA in photography from the Royal Academy of Arts in The Hague. Photography is the starting point of her work, but often she uses paint, silkscreen, drawings, and other techniques. Zwietering received the Mondriaan Stipend for Emerging Artist and exhibited her work at the Foam, de Lakenhal Museum, Art Rotterdam, Unfair, Unseen and Dutch Design Week. Recently, she published a book with publisher the Eriskay Connection.
In her work Zwietering investigates the human perspective on climate crisis. As an artist she converts terrifying facts into gentle, almost tender images. In a world subject to crisis she seek for solace. For a way of dealing with a future that approaches us rapidly. She faces the future with wonder as my greatest weapon. In addition to consolation, her work also offers reflection. Because how are we, inhabitants of this earth, going to deal with heavier periods of water shortages, heat and flooding, and all the consequences they entail?
