_______________________________________

The works of Daniëlle van Ark make use of different (sub)cultural languages and examine the passing of time. By appropriating objects and manipulating existing content related to socio-cultural status, the mostly labour-intensive works of Daniëlle van Ark show the fragility of life and explore her own position as an artist today.
