#WERKSTOFF Ada van Hoorebeke

›Over the last thirteen years, I have immersed myself into painting with wax (Batik) and researched ways to produce my own colours and dyes with natural waste materials. My installations reflect the process of making and function as platforms for exchange and collaboration. Besides the works, tools constitute a vital component. Through workshops, collaborative textile dyeing sessions, photo shoots and performances, I seek to involve viewers in the production processes. This allows a new approach to artistic production provoking a reflection on concepts such as manual labour, production chains, ›female‹ labour and thinking.‹ – Ada van Hoorebeke
