Cindy Moorman

The work of visual artist Cindy Moorman is characterized as an ongoing research into human relationships. How do I relate to the Other(s)? What does it take to ‘belong’? These are questions that play a role in her work. Moorman is best known for her carefully staged performances that she has performed by various groups; from acrobats to dancers to choirs. The concept and plans behind this are translated in intriguing scenarios; drawings, paintings, photographs and clothing. Moorman studied at the School of the Arts in Arnhem (1999-2003) and the Master’s program of the Sint Joost in Breda (2003-2005).

Her work has been exhibited in renown places as Museum Voorlinden in Wassenaar, the Van Abbemuseum in Eindhoven, the Museum of Modern Art in Arnhem and the Stedelijk Museum Bureau Amsterdam. And is included in various private and museum collections, including the collection of the Van Abbeuseum in Eindhoven.

In 2018, Moorman’s oeuvre was rewarded with the Stipend Established Artists. She is currently working on a new work for an exhibition in Kunstverein Ahlen (DE) and an artist’s book about her work.

Cindy is the initiator and curator of the Future Based reading sessions: Formations Rather than Forms: Exploring the choreographies of the human position.
