Marit van Heumen, born in ’s-Hertogenbosch, the Netherlands (1991), is graduated at the jewelry department of the Maastricht Academy of Fine Arts and Design. However, she cannot be described as a traditional jewelry maker. In her art practice, she focusses on exploring the relationship between the human body, objects, and the spaces surrounding us. It interests her how objects obtain meaning due to their link with space, and how objects tell us by their design, how they are meant to be used.

By making changes in our interaction with objects and spaces, and by making changes in their placement and proportion, Marit wants to challenge the relationship between the human body, product and space. This mainly results in interdisciplinary, research based objects and installations.
