Cecile Wentges


the business world

to the art world.

Initiating and organizing social projects

as an independent artist

and mediator.


Coming from a conservative background and brought up with strict morals, Cecile Wentges is constantly searching for the balance between structure and freedom.

After finishing a Master’s in Economics and a two-year job at a multinational corporation she decided to study Art and Design at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy. For her graduation project, she built an actual bridge, literally connecting the art academy to the next door Loyens & Loeff law office. She conducted tours for each side through the other’s world. This was the first of Wentges’s projects to connect between the two worlds she inhabits personally and professionally. Wentges has continued to make creative connections between the art world and the business world as a central element of her practice as both an independent artist and mediator. She believes that art and business can be inspirational to each other and create transformative interactions between people of different skills and backgrounds.

'Cecile Wentges maakt ruimtelijke installaties die een vanzelfsprekendheid of ogenschijnlijke alledaagsheid expliciet en bijzonder maken. Ze spoort onzichtbare verbanden op en legt deze op een poetische en humoristische manier bloot. Haar werk geeft hierdoor een opening om anders naar je eigen omgeving te kijken, om haar beter te waarderen en zelf weer nieuwe verbanden te ontdekken.'

– Femke Bijlsma, architectuur criticus (Domus, Frame, La Repubblica)
