Minou graduated as a jewellery designer at Maastricht Academy of Fine Arts and Design, and sees herself as a jewellery designer and prop-maker.
The interaction between wearable objects and the human body interests her a lot, and plays a constant role in her work. She likes to take ‘the normal’ out of its context, twist and play with it, and see where it ends up.
Her work examines the malleability of the human body, whereby she observes people and enlarges their movement.
The body related objects she creates are made to be part of something bigger. She aims at collaborating with all kinds of ‘story tellers’; photographers, fashion designers, and so on.
