Manon van Kouswijk
Within her work she focus on the value and meaning that everyday objects represent to us. She is interested in actions and rituals in which these objects take part, like finding, buying, collecting,receiving and giving. In the works she visualises aspects of their function, of use and wear, and of associations that are connected with them.
