PROJECT B.

The cusp of perfection and imperfection in the theme of the work of artist Nicolette Bénard. A series of wall sculptures framed in plexiglass box. In ‘Project B.’ Nicolette investigates a doll position as an icon of beauty – the sum of the perfect, indulgent women – and asks: Is it ideal beauty or false idealism?

Project B. is in a borderland between being adorable and absurd, being quite obscure and quite recognizable at the same time; because behind the balls of fabric, under the all-absorbing flowers, we can still see a doll’s fastidious hands and the elegant legs sticking out.

A doll does however, form the ideal object to re-shape and re-imagine. With a wink and a healthy dose of humor, Nicolette works on her dolls and transforms them to…..yes, to what exactly?

Every single item is made by hand with care. World wide shipping is available, or make an appointment to visit the studio in Den Haag, The Netherlands.

It is of course also possible to have a custom made work of art made according to your personal preferences.
