Products by Eekta Trienekens

Eekta Trienekens grew up in the Netherlands and lived in the medieval cities of Amersfoort and Leiden before moving to Canada a little over a decade ago. Her mother is from Punjab, India, and Eekta spent many seasons there for extended visits with her grandparents. The extreme contrast between these two worlds is a strong influence in her work, oscillating between a sense of belonging and otherness. She has a degree in Arts Education (Utrecht) and South Asian Studies (Leiden). Though Eekta works in a variety of materials, ceramics has been her main artistic practice since 2015.
