Lizan Freijsens work emphasizes on her fascination with fungi, societies attempt to ban mold and moisture spots from our everyday environment.
In the project ‘Decay on demand’ photos of leakages were transformed into wallpaper and installed primarily in new houses in order to give them a history. Changing something ugly into products of value is Freijsenʼs way of recycling what is already present. Embracing imperfection is in fact a respond to the over controlled society in which we live.
Traces of decay find their way back inside also as interior objects, in order to remind us of what we tend not to see.
For the production of unique, hand made carpets and blankets for floors and walls, Freijsen collaborates over 7 years with the Textile Museum in Tilburg.
By turning moisture stains into textiles, Lizan Freijsen focuses on these blind spots and visualizes their beauty.
