A woman stretches back in one fluid motion: full of surrender. She is naked and sensual. The arms and the upper part of her body are liquify, enhancing the sense of surrender. She becomes part of a larger whole, moves with it.

For centuries the woman has been a model, muse, (lust-) object for men. She is often eroticized. This sculpture is based on a feeling from within, not on a representation from the outside.

This sculpture is about being vulnerable and protecting oneself within a cage. The little oval inside is the heart. It is an element that I use more often in my work. The head is missing as this is not about ration things, it is about feeling. The cage provides protection but is not entirely closed.

Price: 235 euros per piece

The “sweethearts” are a sequel of the sculpture ‘drink my blood’ that I made in 2001. The head and hands were filled with red wine. You can fill the ‘sweetheart’ with sweet e.g. sugar or honey.

The human body is part of the cycle of life and of the circular system on Earth. Mankind is little aware of the latter. We pollute the system and damage it by taking more than it can handle. In addition to the earthly fact that man is part of the circular system (life → death → food → life), there is the spiritual and symbolic meaning of consuming a body. Consuming the wine and sweet is about absorbing another in yourself: about surrender, love and unification.

They move like a swarm. At first they are not noticed as a danger because of their pure and clear appearance and their small size. Only when you look closely do you see that the star-like shapes are made of fingers. The manipulators work on all sorts of things unnoticed in plain sight. They bend things to their will and pull the strings. Seduction, disguise and masquerade are used. Nothing is what it seems.

The touchables are part of a work that I presented at my graduation exhibition at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie entitled collection. ‘Collection’ consists of a cupboard filled with strange, colourful objects made of glass, feathers and textile. There are also two large, strange plush objects and a very small ‘human body’. The cabinet is modern, but its contents are reminiscent of art and curiosity cabinets: a presentation of naturalia, man-made art, and exotic objects. 

The touchables have an organic look but are so strange that you have no idea whether it is a plant, an organism from the water, a strange animal form, or an art object. The coloured flock and feathers give an exotic impression. Their unfamiliar appearance evokes curiosity and astonishment. When you touch them, they often feel very different than you would expect. They put you on the wrong track, give you a different perception, and show you that what you see with your eye is not necessarily what you feel with your hands. Sometimes there is an unexpected sound. 

With ‘collection’, I wanted to give the audience a special experience by also letting them feel the objects, because I have a great need to touch things myself. I like to know whether something feels soft or hard, cold or warm and whether it is a heavy or light material. The tactile experience contributes to my overall perception of things. In a museum, I often feel the need to touch a work, which, unfortunately, but understandably, is not allowed. I wanted to do this differently for my exhibition. When collecting things, I indicated that people could pick up the touchables and feel them. People really liked being allowed to touch the objects. However, this permission apparently also gave them the idea that they did not have to be careful. I was no longer comfortable and changed my plan of approach. I said nothing more about touching and decided to observe the visitors. Many people couldn’t resist a sneaky touch. Some asked me if they could touch a work. When they were allowed to feel it carefully, or I put the object in someone’s hands especially, the experience was totally different: people were attentive and concentrated. The exclusivity of the experience and the awareness that something is vulnerable and valuable turned out to have a great influence on the experience.

I made the touchables in a two years. They are various objects made of glass and textiles, for which I worked with different techniques such as glassblowing, blowing in sand, sandcasting, moulding, hot-forming, sandblasting, grinding, etching, flocking, stitching and glueing.

You can wear this touchable on your back. The blue scales give you a dragon’s back, the long arms you can wrap around you. Because of its presence and weight, ‘comfortyou the wearable’ gives you the feeling that you are supported and cuddled. So you can face the world again and you don’t have to feel alone.
