Aam Solleveld graduated from the Gerrit Rietveld Academy and the Sandberg Instituut in Amsterdam in fine arts. She was artist in residence at the Rijksakademie in Amsterdam between 2001 and 2003 and did work stays and residencies in Havana and Santiago de Cuba, Xiamen, Beijing and Shanghai.
Solleveld makes site-specific artworks that interact with the size, essence and significance of a space. These works are often large scale and life size. As a viewer you are not merely looking at the work, but you find yourself inside the work, becoming part of it.
Systems of lines, grids and repetitions of archetype geometric shapes. These do deal with the architecture and change a space or location and its surroundings, creating a new experience of that space.
The installations are shown internationally in museums and galleries such as the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, S.M.A.K in Ghent, and the White box gallery in New York. Works in commission were made for among others: cities in the Netherlands and France, OLVG West, Ymere, Rochdale, Rabobank and the Rijksgebouwendienst.
Artworks for public space are executed in various materials depending on the purpose, location and budget. Durable tapes, steel, paint, light, cast in concrete, sandblasted in concrete, cut in plastered walls, CNC cut in stone, wood, glass or otherwise!
