Ludamus, what if we play together and organize a new way of life
Last winter, I visited the exhibition ‘Pure Rubens’ in the Boymans van Beuningen Museum in Rotterdam and found myself inspired by Rubens’ oil sketch of Psyche Taken Up into Olympus
. Unlike Rubens I am all for the idea of a woman as god and creator!
My new series ‘Ludamus’, Latin for ‘Let’s Play’, came into existence.
I long for divine, voluptuous goddesses
flying to heaven. I engaged dancers, who could watch their movements on the screen during the shoot.
Working that directly and in the moment, created a burst of playful energy, as you can see.
