Sabi van Hemert, lives and works in Rotterdam. Hemert creates sculptures that are a fusion between child and animals.
Her sculptures have a quality of alternately denying and confirming what you think you see in them and what feeling they give you. Because it is not immediately clear what you are seeing, the relation between viewer and sculpture is more complex.
“I create images that evoke associations with people and animals. I imagine the balance between the many conflicting feelings and thoughts that a man can have. Balance between opposites as attractive / repulsive, happy / sad or fear / security. My pictures have something in them that causes you to think what to see and feel that it gives you, and then confirm again denied.”
