Elfi Voermans

In my work I strive for a universal imagery, searching between the boundaries of the aesthetics and  the macabre. 

I reveal themes as fear, decay, sexuality, religion, death and destruction, which play an important role in my research into ‘motherhood’. I feel an immense urge to preserve my findings. By placing myself (and my children) as subject, I translate my own experiences of society developments. Archetypes, historical figures and natural processes are leading/prominent for creating my own universe,  which I try to make a translation to the present-day. I remove objects from their original meaning, and view existing symbolisms from a different perspective. Therefore the line between the present and the past became increasingly vague. My works often consist of separate elements, different techniques and media that together form an installation. I would like to give the spectator the feeling that they are entering my personal space.
