- In Short
Kim van Erven
Kim van Erven’s work deals with the aesthetics of the commonplace.
She is fascinated by the phenomenon of man trying to make their surroundings prettier and cozier by means of art, furniture and cheap decorations, while not necessarily succeeding at it.
Her sculptures are recognizable and alienating at the same time. The choice for material gives the works a special and recognizable identity. Some sculptures appeal to sensuality, others have a humorous load.
