Femke Herregraven is an artist who investigates which material base, geographies, and value systems are carved out by financial technologies and infrastructures. Currently, she is a practice-based PhD candidate at Sandberg Instituut, Amsterdam, 2020–2023. She is also an alumnus of the Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten, Amsterdam, 2017–2018. Herregraven’s work focuses on the effects of abstract value systems on historiography and individual lives. This research forms the basis for the conception of new characters, stories, objects, sculptures, sound, and mixed-media installations. Her current work focuses on the financialization of the future as a “catastrophe,” and uses language as well as the voice to examine these monetized speculative catastrophes within our social, biological, and technological ecosystems. Selected solo exhibitions include: Corrupted Air, Future Gallery, Berlin, 2019; and A reversal is what is expected, Westfälischer Kunstverein, Münster, 2018. Together with No Linear Fucking Time artist Jean Katambayi Mukendi, and others, Herregraven is part of On-Trade-Off, an artist-led project on energy mythology around lithium. In 2019, she was nominated for the Prix de Rome. She lives in Amsterdam.
