Birthe Leemeijer was born in Amsterdam (1972) and lives and works in Haarlem. She gets inspired by the world, its landscape and nature and therefore uses them as the main sources of inspiration for her works. She acts as a director and offers texts like: “I’ll let you see the best I know.” Also, she might ask you to come along in an air balloon and enjoy the view over the landscape or ask you to plant a tree at every birth of a baby, which she did in the ‘Mothers of Klarenbeek’ project. Her works are related to ‘social performance’ in which the artist makes personal contact with the public.
