Aam Solleveld graduated from the Gerrit Rietveld Academy, Amsterdam and the Sandberg Instituut in Amsterdam both in fine arts. From 2001 till 2003 she stayed at the Rijksakademie in Amsterdam and was artist in residence in Havana, Cuba, and Xiamen, Beijing and Shanghai, China.
Solleveld makes site-specific artworks that interact with the size, architecture and essence 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 change a location and its surroundings and create a new experience of that space.
Her work is exhibited 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 are made in commission/public space for among others: several cities in the Netherlands and France, OLVG West, Ymere, Rochdale, Rabobank and the Rijksgebouwendienst.
These works are executed in various materials depending on the purpose, location and budget available. Durable tapes, steel, paint, light, cast in concrete, sandblasted in concrete, cut in plastered walls, CNC cut in stone, wood, glass or otherwise.
