Mimosa Echard, Nanda Janssen
Artworks by Mimosa Echard flout traditional classifications and reconciles opposing facets. She’s a rather intuitive artist with a strong sense for materials. Her exciting combinations of materials are thrilling. In addition to the strong material presence, there’s a strong undercurrent in the artworks. Of sublimation, I you will. The idea of contamination is also present. I often experience a precarious balance between enticing, even erotic, and ugly, repulsive and dismal in her works.
