Mienke van Zyl

My background is in puppetry from a performing arts perspective. However, with my work I attempt to elevate the marionette from a stage prop to kinetic sculpture status. By exploring the animal skeleton, trying to understand and interpret its form and function, I attempt to capture the beauty of this intricate structure.
