Erica van Loon


Erica van Loon
Netherlands
Erica van Loon lives and works in Amsterdam and, incidentally, in more scenic, often mountainous places as artist-in-residence. After receiving a BA in Architectural Design and Fine Art, she attended the post-academic institution De Ateliers in Amsterdam. With her recent work she reflects on the physical interconnection between the human body and that of the Earth, simultaneously searching for ways to relate to their less-tangible inner worlds, like hidden processes inside our planet or the human (sub)conscious. Erica works with a variety of media and often uses repetitive actions or visual and auditory rhythms as instruments to intensify sensory perception.

Your Brain Has No Smell
Cross-/Inter-disciplinary Practice
For Your Brain Has No Smell, one sits on a swivel stool with headphones on and listens to a monologue by a professor in Anatomy. While she is dissecting brains she speaks in detail about the different colors, textures and currents in your brain. She tells you how it feels to take apart the different tissues. She speculates on your (un)consciousness and all possible senses for perceiving your inside, as well as the environment around you.
