The drawings and animations of Dutch artist Tja Ling, can be experienced as a symbiosis between the East and the West. Her drawings and animated films show us how she perceives the world around her as a result of her upbringing, where different cultures meet.
With her images Tja Ling denounces our affection for material goods. As an artist she strives to acquire a new way of knowledge through the use of our senses and emotions. As a result the meaning of her drawings and animated films are deliberately left open. Her drawings are there to be experienced.
