Milou van Vlijmen is an artist based in Amsterdam. Her works take the form of installations in which she uses video, sound, photography, sculpture, crafts and prop making. In her work she deals with storytelling through material and movement, taking observations from everyday life as a starting point. The subjects in her works center 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. Recurring themes are the mundane, motherhood and the representation of women, using humor and play as a tool to negotiate a position within the societies we live in.
