Enabling Disabilities

Tormented, exasperated, provocative creatures express an interplay between flesh and bones, vulnerability and strength. To construct and shape her sculptures Nadine van Veldhuizen pushes the characteristics of materials, which everyone is familiar with, to their utmost limits. In this way she researches the autonomy of the human figure. By affording the figure a distorted and warped look she cherishes the true and real nature of humanity: a battle between vulnerability and strength.
