‘My mother collected all the dust from her vacuum cleaner for weeks and mobilized all her friends and acquaintances to do the same and deliver the dust to her, so at one point there would be enough dust to create this image. A nice example on how your family can support you in the making of your work!’ - Anouk Kruithof

Her work is not only intelligent, but also inventive, experimental, daring and cheerful.
