Knitted scuptures, made of human hair.

My vision is that what we experience as contradictional is in fact equal.
Like: love and hate, guilt and innocence etc. While making my sculptures I
try to give shape to this vision, being confronting, obstinate and
dualistic. Up until now all my sculptures are made out of human hair. A
material with many associations: beauty and health but also horror and
death. The sculptures are not an accusation. They are just the mirror of my

‘She allways wanted a boy’
‘Old man resting’
