Art as a safe place to remember things you never want to forget.
A small personal wooden art-cabinet to store valuable memories
From 2015 Monique makes ’Art to remember’, wooden art-objects in different sizes, to store small things that remind you of moments you never want to forget. For yourself or to give to someone else on a very special occasion. Ment for everybody, adults or children and unique for they are all different. The objects all tell their own little story and they invite you to add your own story. When you look at them you see impressions of nature, traces and footprints, travelling roads, rivers and boats, blue sky and white clouds, small houses and so on. This little cabinet has a hole in the bottom where you can put in your small treasures. This can be anything. The blacksmith in my own small village made a stainless steel cylinder with a cover that you can put in the hole. He also made a nice metal disc to close the hole. The small cabinet is painted outside with a lot of care. In this case with oilpaint, the houses are painted with beewax and pigments. They are made of wood I found near the river.
