Maud Faassen, 1999 NL
Maud Faassen’s work revolves around their presence in reality. This presence is captured in performances and installations which are made out of natural elements. Their work involves subjects such as: connection, legacy, transience, human traces and the presence of time.
Maud sees their art practice as a conversation where sometimes Maud is communicating and otherwise they try to listen to the communication of this reality.
This conversation is best formed through natural materials because those materials are the least influenced by others and the most true to the world around us. They will also bring a will, proces and voice of their own.
This conversation is based on equality. This means a respect for this reality and the world within it. This respect is formed through the transient nature of Maud’s work. With this transiency there is nothing forced upon this reality. It is all formed with softness and empathy. And when this reality had had enough of it. It can all go when it wants to.
