Rikke ter Horst focuses in her work on objects in their broadest sense. Especially on how they behave instead of what they are. We often don’t consciously see trivial objects anymore because we are completely used to them. Still we know how to act when we, for example see a sink. We will, most of the time, wash our hands.
In her work she gives those objects a platform. By experimenting with altering their functions, connecting them en deconstructing them, new connections appear and expectations are broken. All of these objects are connected to forms, other objects, people and processes. Together they form systems. In her installations small systems appear. Visitors can become part of it by simply being physically present.
