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 with the artist.
The work is based on a recent Residency in France, where Noorlander did an artistic ethological and anthropological research for animality in man and the relationship between humans and animals.
