For Marij, creating is a search for ways to represent points of contact and confrontations (such as doubt, passion, movement and standstill) in her sculptures. The content is often strong and fragile at the same time, and her choice of materials reinforces this contrast. Clay figures, scrap iron, weathered objects and natural finds are assembled into one story. Each piece is unique and, however, arises from a rather intuitive creation process.
