Inge van Heerde
looking for the momentum when flying suddenly becomes falling
Inge van Heerde is fascinated by patterns in human behaviour and turns to myths and mythology to help her understand these patterns. Myths, with their abnormal occurrences, often deal with basic emotions such as fear, love and longing; emotions that fuel our behaviours. In her work, Inge puts focus on the uneven paths we walk in life. Life is as full of magic as it is of tragedy.
Van Heerde is looking for momentum: flying suddenly becomes falling. Likewise, the feeling of falling can turn into the experience of flying. After all, are these not the split seconds during which we truly learn to understand fear, love and longing?
