For Judy Van Luyk it is a necessity that not everything is perfect; it is the imperfections that make life exciting and a city livable. Her latest intervention in a public space consisted in drilling holes in a wall that would then become main characters. she zooms-in onto these objects and alienates them from their surrounding, creating a graphical language.

Judy Van Luyk is a dutch conceptual artist and her work is mostly site-specific, she believes that the work she produces should be pervaded with the place it will be exhibited in, it also means that she gets her direct inspiration from the environment she works in. She is fascinated by human traces, therefore she researches the surroundings and focuses on objects and details, that way details we normally don’t pay attention to become worthwhile looking at.
