Milou van Vlijmen

In my work I deal with storytelling through material and movement. Often I use personal stories and observations as a starting point. The subjects in my works, centre around absurdist narratives often involving the female body in numerous identities performing ubiquitous rituals from eating, to dancing, to the application and customisation of cosmetics and costumes. The site of the female body has become a terrain for me to explore the grotesque, compulsive behaviour and shameless fun. My interests and thematic starting points lead me to working with a variety of media including sculpture, photography, video, sound, performance, traditional crafts, theater and prop making.
