The skin on the milk
Introduction to catalogue of 3rd Rijswijk Textile Biennial, 2013
The visual memory of touch
Initially it is a slippery, shiny layer on hot milk. When fished out of the cup, dangling from the spoon, it proves to be a surprisingly tenacious substance. Draped over the edge of the saucer it forms interesting folds and wrinkles. Any contact with lip or tongue is for many people abhorrent. Just reading about skin on milk can bring on the impulse to retch. This reaction can often be linked to memories from childhood. What artist would not want to effect such an intense reaction - preferably with positive connotations, of course – with his/her work?
