Summary note:
Joke Van den Heuvel creates images by using existing footage that fascinate her: the shattered metacarpals of Michelangelo?s Piëta, the hand of a girl by Rodin, hands of begging Greek citizens in the middle of the Greek crisis. During her stay in Rome, Joke Van den Heuvel, discovers the image of Bernini: The abduction of Proserpina. In the meantime she reads The Book of Disquiet by Fernando Pessoa. All this inspires her, by free associations and appropriations, to craft video installations and the artist book "134340".
