D’un animal, l’autre at This Art Fair, Beurs van Berlage Amsterdam

Performance and installation D’un animal, l’autre is based on the residency in south of France about animality. Customers got an one on-to-one consult about their animality and a personal receipt.

Merel Noorlander explores the possibilities of pop-up mechanics with performance and stop-motion animation. She studies and develops pop-up installations and costumes in which she creates portable and moving objects with a sophisticated mechanism. During TAF she presents her nostalgic metamorphoses with objects, tools, maps and pop-ups as a walk-in-consultation. The visitors receives a questionnaire before they have a personal consult about their animality. The work is based on a recent Residency in France, where Noorlander did an artistic ethological- and anthropological research (in collaboration with Eric de Sarria and MIMA) for animality in man and the relationship between humans and animals.
