Georgie Brinkman (she/her) is an artist and researcher who lives in The Hague. Growing up in a coastal town in the UK, she studied BA Fine Art at Kingston University, graduating in 2014. After this, alongside her practice she founded a residency platform in London for early career artists working at the intersection of costume and artist filmmaking, called The New Flesh. Here she coordinated residencies, talks, screenings and events with institutional partners Academy Costumes, LUX and Berwick Film & Media Art Festival.

Swapping one coastal town for another, Georgie moved to The Hague in 2019 to study MA Artistic Research where she was supported by a scholarship from the Leverhulme Trust. After graduating, she worked at the KABK as both an Educational Instructor at the computer workshop and a Library Assistant before joining the MAR department as coordinator. Within the academy Georgie is a Sounding Board member for PARC (Platform for Artistic Research through Collaboration) initiated by KABK and Leiden University, and she is undertaking an ‘Artist as Teacher’ course for teaching in Higher Education.

As an artist, her work treads a precarious ground between science-fiction and science-fact (and the muddy sludge in between). It dips a toe in the realms of moving image, installations, audio works, writing, performance or whatever else feels right at the time. In an age of mass extinction her works celebrate other-than-human existence by casting animals, plants and minerals as leading protagonists. By entering Georgie’s constructed worlds you may encounter a melancholic seagull, a leech who is a poet, or an ocean with a broken heart. Recent presentations include Stedelijk Museum Breda, Het Nieuwe Instituut, Stroom Den Haag, Page Not Found, iii, Media Art Friesland, SEA Foundation, Art au Centre Liège and More than Ponies.
