I met Ivonne Wilken about a year ago, not long after I moved to Tromsø. Born in Emmen, Netherlands, Ivonne studied journalism in Zwolle and anthropology/criminology in Utrecht. She’s a writer, writing in both Dutch and English. You can find her book published in English titled VIS-A-VIS available in Kindle version. She’s also an artist. Her sculpture collection currently on display at Art Café is titled Connections, and it’s a personal exploration and expression of relationships.
As Ivonne explains: Her art explores the intricate spiderweb of connections that is tightly spun together by the emotions that these ties provoke. It is an emotional and thought provoking exhibition well worth a visit, given a gilded edge by the welcoming surroundings at the Art Café.
Her works are currently on display at Art Café through the months of August and September 2019.
