BIO


Avantia Damberg (1977, Leeuwarden) lives and works in Curaçao,
Dutch Caribbean.


She graduated in 2007 from the art academy Gerrit Rietveld Academie Amsterdam in Audiovisual Arts and started her career as a visual artist in 2008. She had a good start right here on the island by the support of established artists such as Tirzo Martha and curator Jennifer Smit. Exhibitions in Amsterdam, Paris, Tallinn, Madrid, Mexico City, and Berlin followed but Avantia prefers to exhibit as much as possible in Curaçao and in the Caribbean region, making it her new center of contemporary art.
Avantia uses video, sculpture, animation and installations and loves to work with texts.
