Suzanne Jongmans: Portraits with Foam Sculptures

Photographer Suzanne Jongmans uses discarded packing and insulation materials to create caps, collars and dresses inspired by 16th and 17th century paintings. By using these materials Jongmans makes a reference to consumerism and the rapid circulation of things. "I use the elements in the present as in the past, the objects in my work are used as symbols of values" she says, "I mutate old costumes into new plastics and old masters in new photographic works. By using time foreign materials, plastics and techno's, I am creating a time crux, a tension of time."
