Ingeborg Entrop

Ingeborg Entrop is an artist based in Groningen, the Netherlands, who works with sound and signs in various media. Her artistic practice started with an interest in language as the most primal of all mental constructions that mankind has developed to grasp the world. Her investigations include the ambiguity of the linguistic sign as image and the visualization of sound, which has lead to an on-going interest in onomatopoeia. Current focus in her work is on environmental sounds in relation to musical aspects, such as rhythm and texture. Recent projects are an onomatopoeic mural-installation near the city center of Groningen and the publication of the art book Fugue in D (liberated silence). After gaining a Bachelor's degree in Fine Arts in 2010, Ingeborg continued to study at the Dutch Art Institute, Arnhem. Earlier she studied physics in Groningen and gained a PhD degree from the Eindhoven University of Technology.
