- In Short
In a broad sense, the work of Joyce Overheul deals with human conduct, why they do what they do, and how this can be influenced.
Overheul often engages herself in social experiments, video projects and performances. She prefers pushing boundaries.
Soft Series is a route alongside Overheul’s regular work. The series consists of an array of weapons made from very fluffy and kitschy fabric. With her series – next to searching for the contrasts between the weapon and the fabric – Overheul investigates what happens when the time, dedication and attention normally spent on producing the original weapons, is transferred to the useless objects the replicas have become.
