Eline de Bruijn (1995) The more our society focuses on individual achievements, performance and productivity, the more we have to become some sort of instrument. But is it possible to force ourselves to use our bodies as mere objects? And by doing so, are we losing the ability to accept failure and limitations? The work of Eline de Bruijn evolves around the idea of objectifying the body. She wonders if the desire to perform affects human behavior and the way we interact with each other. By collecting images in which the body is subjected to a certain act or ideal she explores this theme. When put together the images tell a story or represent a choreography which de Bruijn uses to construct performances.
