Frederiek Simons (b. 1996 NL) is a visual artist, weaver, researcher, and writer based in Amsterdam. She works across and connects multiple disciplines, often incorporating textile art forms such as weaving and embroidery. Her works depart from (critical) observations, fascinations, exchanges, or coincidental situations, and they get further informed by theoretical and material research. Through that process, they take the shape of meticulously fabrics, texts, installations, or interactions.
She holds a BFA in TXT (text and textile) from the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam and is currently doing a MA (research) in Art and Culture, in the direction Artistic Research. Her works have been shown in the Netherlands and Greece and her writing has been published in art magazines, both online and in-print. She has collaborated with various cultural institutions and artists, such as Lena Violetta Leitner, Yael Davids, State of Concept Athens, and Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam. She also works as a language teacher.
