Brigitte Spiegeler is a Dutch artist who graduated in fine arts from the Royal Academy of Arts, The Hague (The Netherlands) in 2008. Her art can be seen worldwide at international exhibitions in China, Turkey, Germany, Italy, Hungary and France. She will participate in the Venice Biennial which opens in May 2017. She has participated in several exhibitions in China. Amongst those has been her exhibition at Photo Beijing, Beijing International Art Biennial at the National Museum of Art Beijing and the International Contemporary Ceramic Art Symposium in De Hua.

For her art works she uses a variety of techniques, such as photography, painting, ceramic and installation. Spiegeler’s works are about an imaginary time which only exists in our minds: in her words “a time without a time, vague with some details popping up, the memory is now, right here, but at the same time endlessly far away and intangible”. She is best known for her series of photographs using a pinhole camera to capture this imaginary time (‘Tracing the Locus’, ‘Structures-Leisure’, ‘Byzantine Blue’, ‘1813’, ‘back to China’ and ‘Budapester Straßen’). She also has a passion for language and a collection of poetry entitled ‘Krijgskunst’ has been published by Uitgeverij In de Knipscheer in 2015. Her works are in several international private collections.
