Growing up I was always seeking female energy, multifaceted women who not only shape and inspire me as a person but also continue the fight for emancipation in a world that is built for and by masculine power. It is our cohesion and the intuition of many individual stories and forces that bring us forward as a society.
Those stories and those who show their faces in a world of isolation and separation inspire me. My Trophy design represents how we are shaped through the battles we fight and the beauty that can come out of it by holding together and supporting each other.
Commissioned trophy design for the emancipation award Joke Smit Prijs in cooperation with the Ministerie van OCW.
