Marjolijn Mandersloot: Whodunit | Author: Annabelle Birnie
With the sculptures of Dutch artist Marjolijn Mandersloot, we find ourselves in pleasant company. Recognisable human and animal shapes are an important source of inspiration in Mandersloot's work, mainly serving as a metaphor. Rabbits, donkeys, dogs and bears are formed in a humorous response to the malleable world of this moment.
Every sculpture seems to possess a fabulous acting talent - body poses and material expression are used to create unique characters which often elicit poignant emotions in onlookers. The omission of detail, expanding proportions or the focus on specific parts of the sculpture leads to a pleasant confusion and often even a smile.
