Vivian Mac Gillavry lives and works in Amsterdam. 

I'm fascinated by shape, networks and systems: symbolizing growth, interconnectivity and somehow life itself. In my practice I explore the beauty in that which is often seen as inconspicuous, trivial or even abject.

Having a background in cultural anthropology, the work of anthropologist Tim Ingold is important to my practice. In his book ‘Lines’ he depicts a world where everything and everyone is made up of intertwined or interconnected lines. 

My sculptures are created by what I call ‘intuitive welding’. A method with which I try to suggest the feeling of three­dimensional drawings. Whereas my drawings and etchings often become sculptural.

In addition to my personal practice, I am part of collective De Derde Plaats with 5 other artists.
