Ostentation of social status, wealth, fame, mortality and impermanence are important themes in the work of Daniëlle van Ark. Everything Fell into the Right Hands (2009-recent) is a photo series of hands of wealthy women, whose fingers are decorated by large gems and signet rings. The indestructible jewel versus the mortal hand.

In her photographs and installations, Dutch artist Daniëlle van Ark (b. 1974) tackles such loaded themes as mortality, social hierarchy, and the passage of time, as well as art-historical concerns like the value and presentation of artworks. In pursuit of these discussions, Van Ark has employed methods of appropriation and undertaken extensive research. Van Ark studied at the KABK in The Hague and was a resident at the Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten in Amsterdam. She has exhibited internationally and was nominated for several prizes like the Steenbergen Stipendium, the Bouw in Beeld Prijs (2011) and the Nationale Portretprijs (2012). In 2012 she exhibited work from the Transience series at Museum van Loon in Amsterdam. Several corporations and institutions have work by Daniëlle in their collections, such as Dutch Ministry of Foreign affairs, Washington DC, US, Antoni van Leeuwenhoek hospital, Amsterdam, NL, Amsterdams Medisch Centrum, Amsterdam, NL, FOAM, Amsterdam, NL, Robert Morat gallery, Hamburg, DE, T Mobile, the Hague, SBK, Amsterdam.
