Elsemarijn Bruys strong curiosity for sensory perception translates into a hybrid artistic practice, oscillating between sculptures and architectural interventions, and strongly influenced by her background in fashion design and theater. One of the mediums most frequently employed by Bruys is air, viewed as an essential way to shape and grant freedom to her work. With it, rectangles become round, spaces are filled and occupied, objects breathe in and out, visitors are subtly flattened and perspectives become deformed. The introduction of air fills her objects with a performative quality, while the change in form it brings about is simultaneously at the core of her work.
