Glass bubbles are taking the central position in the objects from Marinke van Zandwijk. Blowing glass by herself gives her the opportunity to give her bubbles an unique soul. With these they all get their own character, their own face. She make different groups of family's who can make their own story's. She gives them attributes like though metal or rough ropes. The interaction between the fragile and transparent glass and the robust steel and rope put emphasis on the vulnerability of the glass.
Marinke van Zandwijk:"Homo bulla est", human is a bubble, a quote from the filosofer Erasmus that chases me.
