About Niqui Kommerkamp

For as long as I can remember, I've always been busy designing things. I have attended quite a number of schools and courses; from Graphic Design to Fashion Academy and have worked and experimented with lots of different materials, like paper, wood, metal, perspex, stone, textile.

I like simple forms and try to leave as much to the imagination as possible. I get my inspiration from everything that evokes emotion. Shame, pride, lust, horror, endearment, arrogance... which often results in surprising sculptures with exciting variations on simple form themes.

"Overexposed" for example, is a series of sculptures that seem to expose themselves a little too much - literally as well as figuratively. The series "Breast Taking" consists of wall tiles with various breast shapes. Realistic and surprisingly plastic variants of breasts. "Skin Tight", consists not only of torsos but also of a still growing collection of corsets, or rather 'body armours'. Always with an erotic, sometimes with a magical, fairytale touch.

My ceramic book series was inspired by the novel "The Shadow of the Wind" by Carlos Ruiz Zafón.
There's a library in this story, not just an ordinary one, but a huge labyrinthine library of obscure and forgotten titles that have long gone out of print; a 'Cemetery of Forgotten Books'.
All my ceramic booklets have therefore at least a worn, neglected and sometimes even a bit "ratty"
