Inge Meijer (Beverwijk, 1986) studied Fine Art at ArtEZ University of the Arts in Arnhem. In 2012, she won the Hendrik Valk Award with her graduation film at ArtEZ University of the Arts. In 2017, she completed her residency at the Rijksakademie in Amsterdam, where her films and installations received a great deal of attention and were highly acclaimed at the Open Studios in 2016 and 2017. After participating at Unfair Amsterdam, Inge Meijer opened her first solo show ‘Companion’ at AKINCI. The installation ‘Still Life #1’ was shown in Garage Rotterdam. Inge Meijer has published a book on the central focus point of this installation: the plant collection of the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam from 1945 – 1983.
Car Garden (2021) is a creation inspired by the work of Mr. Duván Antonio Ramírez, a plant breeder in Medellín, Colombia. Ramírez grows his plants on a rooftop garden, sowing generations of specimens that he transports to people in the city with an installation he made for his car. The idea to use the space on the outside of car for transporting plants inspired artist Inge Meijer to think differently about the exterior of cars: it gave her the possibility to envision cars with plants on them.
