Collection of the Artist.

Lijn did not get the idea of using beads from African art but from beaded curtains and door screens which she has always loved. Connect that to the veil worn by women. Lijn’s preoccupation with curtains comes from looking through them. Veils are curtains drawn across the window of a woman’s face.
