Description

In my wearable sculptures I increase the symbolic meaning of clothing. By enlarging and demolishing ideal images, I look for the emotion that lies behind these (self) images. The sculptures often undergo a transformation. Something happens to the sculptures, they change shape, are torn off, air is blown in. For example, I designed wearable sculptures with inflatable breasts and buttocks to denounce the makeable body. A ‘ballroom dress’ that turns out to be a prison and another one in which all the ‘beauty ideals’ such as long hair, red lips and large breasts and buttocks are torn off one by one.
My sources of inspiration are Federico Fellini, Pina Bausch, Fong Leng, Oscar Schlemmer (Bauhaus).
This book consists of different photoshoots that were taken from my performances with wearable sculptures between 1981 and 2008.

À propos de l'auteur

Since the eighties, I have used various art forms to research the feminine role. As a result I felt the urge to portray women in a different way than the standard image. The art forms that I work with are performances with wearable sculptures, fashion designs, videos, installations and photography. In addition I use music and poetry.I started my career with performances in galleries, theaters and festivals in the Netherlands and abroad: Kleine Komedie, Brakke Grond, Panama, Escape, Melkweg, Paradiso, Mazzo, Maison Descartes and Vondelpark Open Air Theatre in Amsterdam, the Hippodrome Theatre in Londen, the World Science Fiction Congress and the Wiener Sommer Symposion in Vienna.From 2008 on my work was exhibited in solo exhibitions: Image & I-magic (2008), Frauensehnsucht (2010), Snowwhite & Sherazade (2012) and Lost in Transition (2017). And in group exhibitions: the Photoville Festival New York, the Sirius Gallery Tokyo, International Video Art Festival Athens, Redleaf Gallery Londen, Swiss Art Space Lausanne, the Affordable Art Fair Londen, Media Museum Pescara, Biennale le Latitudini dell Arte Genua, Gallery Hyperflexion South Africa. In 2010 I was the main artist in the International Women Art Festival in Aleppo (Syria). And in 2014 chosen as Photo Talent of GUP (Guide Unique Photography).
