I am really interested in Hedwig Houben’s approach to performance, and the way she interacts with sculptures in the space. She experiments in a lot of her work with blurring the line between the process and the finished piece, and this has been an aspect present in my own practice which I have been experimenting with. Houben seems to have refined this approach, and has found ways to introduce both into her practice in the gallery space.

I am also interested in the way her piece is staged, and it has given me some ideas and inspiration for when it comes to staging my degree piece in the coming weeks.
