Magic miniatures.

This text is an excerpt written by Jorunn Veiteberg from the book Felieke van der Leest: The Zoo of Live Jewellery & Objects 1996-2014. Published by Arnoldsche Art Publishers in 2014. This book looks over the career of the Dutch artist. Almost 20 years from her early beginnings in the Gerrit Rietveld Akademie till the present. She combines textile work, like crochet with precious metal and plastic toys. Although there is an evident reference at childhood, her artwork is far away from a childish issue, revealing irony and absurd humor.-2016-2016
