Afra Eisma’s work construes autobiographical worlds that burst with energy. Using craft techniques in novel ways, Eisma expresses personal stories that result in immersive and intimate installations consisting of tapestries, sculptures and ceramics. They invite the viewer’s imagination to infuse the sensuality and passion that the works encapsulate with whimsy and lightheartedness. The presentations of her works are an enchanting exercise in which generosity is an infectious game of caring and being cared for. Eisma stresses the importance that her work is born out of an explosion of the imagination. By sharing this, Eisma proposes an important counter to a world so full of deprivation and exclusion. Instead, her work offers generosity as resistance.
