How I Create is an Unseen Platform video series delving into the creative process of artists' we support.
We visited Marleen Sleeuwits’ studio where she talks of her intrigue for the everyday interiors we spend so much time in. Enhancing colours, shapes and materials found within, the artist expands on how she creates playful works that conflate our perception of two and three dimensional space.

“My process centres around found materials, bundling together tube- lights and electrical cables; insulation blocks are melded with foil, foam polystyrene blocks, carpet tiles to create large, erratic installations.“
“...archival photographs are essential for transmitting history and experience to new generations, because stories that contain images generate empathy, and will reach younger people in a more emotional way.“
“The simplicity in the forms and composition of my work is meant to create the ‘vacuum’ which is needed to rescue memories and images settled deep down in our subconscious, where archetypal forms lie.“
