Jelle Annie Michiels, 1981, shapes het tactile sculptures by stacking and combining found objects. With a keen eye for color, contrast and materiality she builds lighthouses, safe harbors where she can come home. Language and synchronicity play a big part in her research. She confronts the viewer with her vulnerability and doesn’t shy away from taboos.
Traumas are processed by sarcasm, feminism wears a pink jacket.
