Heidi Nagtegaal – Artist, Hammock Residency, Founder http://www.heidi-nagtegaal.com/

Heidi Nagtegaal is an artist, writer and facilitator living in Vancouver, BC. After receiving her BFA from ECUAD in 2005, Nagtegaal has gone on to found local arts initiatives such as the Hammock Residency and Headbands and Bracelets, parallel to her own practice.

Basing her work on emergent natures, she uses an aesthetic of emergency, DIY, utilizing available materials to make “something out of nothing”. Challenging the notions of “something” and “nothing,” she engages a fluidity of structures, transformation, personal chemistry and connection to create alchemic art. Sculptures, intervention, performance, installation, and activation are key elements in her relational social practice, creating both an object, and the ephemeral.

With a focus on process and research, Golboo’s practice fits within the discourse of knowledge production and distribution, utilizing the Internet and search engine results to highlight ways in which language and gestures become dominant tools of informing and imagining the world.
