Janneke van der Putten is a visual artist and vocalist based in Rotterdam. Her practice involves experiences of listening, performances, sound and video, documentations in image/text/textile, workshops, music projects, and creating platforms for cultural exchange. Her voice is her main tool, guiding her through physical and sonic explorations in different landscapes. Engaging with specific sites and local contexts, and through her personal experiences, she investigates (human) responses to her surroundings, and their relation to natural phenomena and transitions, such as the sunrise. She graduated from TXT (Textile), Gerrit Rietveld Academy (Amsterdam) and completed her MMus in Artistic Research, Royal Academy of Art & Royal Conservatoire (The Hague). She trained in North-Indian Dhrupad singing with Amelia Cuni and Marianne Svašek, and is autodidact in various extended vocal techniques. The project ‘Invisible Architecture’ with Christian Galarreta, for which they published a vinyl in 2014, has been presented at amongst others Museo de Arte Contemporáneo (Lima). Forthcoming will be solo show Quitsa, CINNNAMON (Rotterdam). In the past year Van der Putten performed in Spain at Liceo Mutante, Espacio Naranjo, La Casa de Max, Espai Cocteau, La Polivalente, Campo Magnético, Màgia Roja, Sonodrome Fest II, and Experimenta Málaga. In 2016 and 2017 she co-curated the Aloardi Festival ‘Peruvian New Music & Arts’, WORM (Rotterdam).
