[News Report=Hye Mi Jung] Carmen Heemels (the Netherlands) followed her studies at the Academy of Fine Arts Sittard / Maastricht (1982-1987).
As a visual artist she is a collector of 'things' that she makes her own by editing them. Later she connects the objects or memories with each other. The pieces fall into each other literally and figuratively.
She asks questions and enters into a dialogue with the viewer.

The answer is up to the viewer, or at least sets the work on a quest. The disciplines in which she works are projects (including land art), installations, but also video, objects and 2-dimensional work.
She also makes photo portraits of, among others, women who have something to say.
