* Haute Talent 2019 *
Lisette Appeldorn has an obsession with masks made from a lot of different materials. She is always looking for that perfect combination of the right colors and materials, draped over the human body. Playing with these materials without having any clear plan on beforehand, she creates a series of different characters that she discovers while shooting. By hiding the face, Appeldorn has control over the emotions in the work, and although there is no distraction of a facial expression, we can still recognise ourselves in the presented shapes. She gets her inspiration from walking past extraordinary households or shops, or searching for that one right fabric.
Appeldorn graduated from HKU, Utrecht in 2014.
