Dorine van Meel is an installation and mixed media artist working in Berlin, Amsterdam, and London. Upon completing her MFA in Fine Art at Goldsmiths College in 2014, she became the fourth recipient of the Nina Stewart Artist Residency at the South London Gallery. Her practice is situated within the media of moving image, writing, and installation.
Selected solo exhibitions include: Disobedient Children at Kunstraum in London (2015), Between the Dog and the Wolf at the South London Gallery (2015), and instead to meet strangers who might change our minds at the Swiss Church in London (2014). On Disobedient Children, arts magazine AQNB responded: “Van Meel’s writing works its way between sculpture, installation and moving image. Focusing on architectural elements, screens hang in different angles and projections seep away from their original frame. Digitally manipulated visuals create abstract landscapes and scenes connected by ‘chapters.’”
Van Meel writes for Temporary Art Review and the Sandberg Institute, recently interviewing Kwezi Gule and Simangaliso Sibiya on their co-directorship of Decolonial Futures.
Her interest in discursive practices, feminist methodologies, and self-organised forms of collaborations is reflected within the projects she initiates. These include Gentle Dust at Jupiter Woods in London and at ROOM Gallery in Johannesburg (2016), The Southern Summer School at BAK in Utrecht (2017), Luminous Flux at Arti et Amicitiae in Amsterdam (2014), and Does Not Equal at W139 in Amsterdam (2015).
