° 1974

Lives in Amsterdam (Netherlands).

Miek Zwamborn is a Dutch artist, poet, translator, and editor of the literary magazine Terras. Her work focuses on history and landscape. Whilst carrying out field research, she travels through time and space. By sifting fragments out of historical archives and studying travelogues and scientific reports, she creates frame tales in which drawings, sculptures, raw material and books play a crucial role. Within these installations a photo pops up within a poem; a performance turns into a book. Each work claims its own place within the story, becoming an indispensable branch of the greater rhizome. Zwamborn has published the novels Oploper (2000, Meulenhoff) and Vallend Hout (2004, Meulenhoff), the poetry book Het krieken van sepia (2008, Slibreeks) and De duimsprong (2013, Van Oorschot). Her visual works have been exhibited in solo and group shows in the Netherlands, Belgium, Switzerland and Ireland.
