The Venus series
From the Venus series
The Venus series is referring to thousands of years of history when goddesses were worshiped, who hide in the earth.
Paula Biemans makes figurines from clay; sea clay of the Eems estuarium. With a spade in the ground rooting it in the layers of time; from now until long ago.
The deeper she digs, the closer she gets to the origin.
Paula bakes the figurines in her own wood-burning stove
around which the figures were buried long ago.
Nudity as ultimate dignity.
