Irina worked as a performer at various art galleries and choreographed
for theatre settings as well as site responsively. At present she
teaches and works in printmaking and cyanotype and is responsible for an
art space, 4bid gallery, part of OT301 cultural centre in Amsterdam, of
which Dierck has been the driving force for many years. _Dierck creates
installations that have a theatrical concept and most often contain
video or film (S8 & 16mm). He brings absurdism in a chaotic, sometimes
even purposely bad, performance setting. _Since “09 he focuses on
producing only his own art pieces, with absurdism and fatalism being
leading themes in his work. Often topics contain contradicting issues
like the old versus the new or the futility of conformity against
contemporary normality. Irina is lead by an interest in openings,
beginnings, finding solutions to un-asked questions. In this way they
meet, uninterested in established method, but method being necessary
for one-time experiences.
