What is your main topic when it comes to art and does this also reflect on your personal life? Or isn’t it possible to divide Person Life and Art Life?
My main topic, when it comes to art, is about the conflict between the ‘idea’ and the outcome of this idea in physical form. I’m always thinking about this subject and how it shapes our visual and material environment, so it’s hard to divide personal and artistic life.
About women’s rights & the abolishment of expression. What do you think of the topic where women in the Netherlands are no longer allowed to wear certain types of clothing to express their identity and what should you do when it comes to this in the arts?
Because it’s also not allowed to walk naked in public, which is also a form of expression for some people.
In my opinion, this is a dilemma between national security and free expression, where is this boundary? I think art has always been a good medium to question this.
About the topic of representation: are there any boundaries in art when it comes to representation of …(subject).
I don’t think there are any boundaries when it comes to the representation of any subject. If you want to express yourself about a subject, you are free to do this. But I do think that the context in which you present it, asks for certain frameworks/boundaries.
