Working with Asian art and objects, especially from Indonesia, feels like coming home.
Amy Wassing literally feels at home among Asian art and objects. Art and objects from Indonesia in particular spark her interest. Her father was the Oceanian curator at the Wereldmuseum Rotterdam and her mother was director of the Indonesia Museum Nusantara in Delft, so she spent a big part of her childhood in museum depots and at art fairs. For this reason, Amy Wassing chose to study Arts and Cultures of Southeast Asia and Oceania at the University of Leiden. From then on, she has followed in the footsteps of her parents, as deputy head of collections at the Wereldmuseum Rotterdam and curator of the Indonesia Museum Nusantara in Delft. In the past few years she has owned her own consulting firm in collection management.
Catawiki is a perfect match for Amy Wassing who can deploy all her expertise in the field of Indonesia and Oceania in the Asian Art and Objects auctions. Her experience in various museums is very similar to her work as an auctioneer. For instance, establishing an interesting exhibition can be comparable to composing an exciting auction. The many hours Amy Wassing has spent in museum depots gave her an enormous database of knowledge, which allows her to often recognise the offered lots at a glance. Nevertheless, she also encounters lots that she doesn't know and this makes her work exciting and surprising, each and every day.
