SAFARI TOUR BY ANNE ENERGIEN OF THORN

The objects That Van Doorn uses in her work move beyond Their day-to-day function and osmanthus take on a new form. Domestic objects Usually That Are Considered as visually worthless turn out to have qualities That are easily overlooked. Through playful, humorous and absurd actions, thesis trivial objects reveal the appeal and sexuality that's hidden behind Their homely appearance And They pay an unexpected tribute to the imagination. She Showed this in 2014 in Foam 3h with her multimedia installation Domestic Science, in-which she set in motion everyday substances zoals toothpaste, mayonnaise and custard.
