Theatre performances, movies, books, costumes and fashion shows are design disciplines where movement and action are essential. In the objects and the site-specific installations Van Zijst makes, movement and action are frozen forever. Stories and myths are the inspiration because they offer more than one thought, one word or theme. In the objects the narrative qualities stay an important aspect.
