Karmanoia brings together people of all kind of professions and skills. During the construction of our large-scale walkthrough labyrinth Doloris' Meta Maze in Tilburg, NL, the rooms we created involved sculpting with different materials. Artists Heidi Jonsson and Natalie Tekampe used their knives wisely to carve, rather than to dip it into peanut butter.

KARMANOIA presents the artists of the Meta Maze:

Merlijn van de Sande, 3/3

Whether it was in painting, miniature building or the narrative implementation of details - we remember working with Merlijn as having someone around who is so skillful and technically apt because she believes that her hands can express what her eyes would like to see.

This is how she remembers working with Karmanoia:

"What was special about the collaboration with Karmanoia for me was the collective creative energy that was present during the building process of the Meta Maze. I'm used to work alone in my studio and this time I really enjoyed working with other artists. By developing ideas and working together you learn a lot of new perspectives and techniques. It was very nice to be able to surround myself with such inspiring people."

KARMANOIA presents the artists of Meta Maze:

Gijs Leijdekkers, 3/3

Gijs’ installation ‘Fireflies’ installation in our Meta Maze at Doloris in Tilburg, NL, was made possible by Gijs' continuous quest to realize a visionary idea that combines creativity and technology in his art. Often, we found him work until late at night taming his code and wiring his ideas to the hardware. Such joy and effort! His work with Karmanoia aligned very well with his own artistic vision:

“My personal work is experiential art that does not fit easily in the art scene. Collaborating with Karmanoia in the Meta Maze was a unique opportunity for me as all the artworks together form one immersive world. It was a beautiful and very inspiring process to collectively share infinite creative energy with such a large visionary international group!”

Gijs Leijdekkers, 2/3

Among the many feature attractions in our Meta Maze at Doloris, Tilburg-area native Gijs Leijdekkers’ ‘Fireflies’ installation stands out as a particularly enchanting experience.

‘Fireflies’ merges sculptural and digital art, inviting the guest to rest while being visited by a dancing swarm of fireflies. The visuals are generated live: you’ll never see the same firefly dance twice! In addition to the concept and set design, Gijs also composed the music, arranged the electronics, and programmed the interactive real-time software. We are grateful to Mickey Yang for her assistance throughout the process!

KARMANOIA presents the artists of the Meta Maze:

Gijs Leijdekkers, 1/3

Have you happened to sit down and dream away in an enchanted forest at Doloris' Meta Maze? This was made possible by our featured artist Gijs Leijdekkers.

Gijs is true multi-talented mastermind. Based in Den Haag, Gijs employs an arsenal of creative disciplines including film, animation, digital painting, design, music, electronics, and programming in his singular work. His love for design was born out of building haunted houses, waterslides, and a rollercoaster in his childhood backyard. Many years later, he’s now professionally building high-profile analog and digital installations such as a gigantic float for Zundert’s internationally renowned Flower Parade, and large-scale projection mapping for Tinker Imagineers at the Tirpitz Museum in Denmark.

His work with Karmanoia can be found in a stunning cinematic installation inside the Meta Maze: The 'Fireflies'.

So, constructing the Meta Maze was like putting a box into a box. Just that these containers rarely shared the same shape. We spent quite a significant amount of time on fitting things into each other - circles into squares, diamonds into eye sockets, a hard-to-come-by dream into a deserted office building.

KARMANOIA presents the artists of the Meta Maze:

Merlijn van de Sande, 2/3

The relationship between handmade aesthetics and narration is the basis on which Merlijn grounds her work. The surreal miniature city that Merlijn created for the Meta Maze was designed on the basis of a narrative, developed together with Karmanoia's Robert Buschbacher. In their collaboration, a collective artwork evolved in which the space, designed by Robert, and the miniature city in its center, establish a direct connection with each other and share a story .

We really like Merlijn's work and her power of creating a new, self-built, ethereal world and the illusion that such a created world evokes of an existing 'real' world. But what is 'real'? Serving as our personal reality, we feed on our individual perception, experiences and expectations that we have. If you look at other miniature landscapes Merlijn has created, you will soon want to enter them with such a normal gesture as if you were to enter the room next door. And disappear....

KARMANOIA presents the artists of the Meta Maze:

Merlijn van de Sande 1/3

Merlijn van de Sande is a Dutch set designer and artist who lives and works in Amsterdam. On our call for artists in 2018 to contribute to the Meta Maze at Doloris, she approached us with the idea of creating a miniature world inside the world we were going to build. We immediately saw that this could add a lot of extra doors of perception to our walkthrough labyrinth - and said yes!

Merlijn finds it interesting to play with creating fantasy landscapes, to deceive our eyes by creating a composition with natural and industrial objects or everyday materials that she gives a new meaning by changing proportions, color or perspective. In her dioramas, the spaces are not literal representations of existing places, but rather combinations of extant and imagined landscapes or architectural possibilities.

We love how this work portraits the potential of our physical existence. Thank you, Merlijn!

Magic in all moments, a true adventure of friendship and hard work - this was our experience creating the Meta Maze in Tilburg, NL. We are going to look back at some very special moments during the creation process. Doing so, we can travel back in time, while the Meta Maze is still awaiting its long foreseen re-opening.

KARMANOIA presents the artists of the Meta Maze:

Esther Valk 3/3

Nature itself is Esther’s biggest source of inspiration. For her feltwork, she observes plants, their shapes, their flowers and seeds – or even pictures from outer space.

Esther Valk's contribution to the Meta Maze at Doloris are large felt sculptures with organic shapes, reminiscent of gestalts you might find in plants or human bodies. Organic in their touch and appearance, the felt sculptures in the Meta Maze are the central elements of the ‘Cocoon’, a space that feels very nest-like and transformational. The wool was even partly coloured with flowers she picked.

Remembering the collaboration with Heidi Jonsson and Karmanoia, Esther recalls: "Through lots of fantastic ideas and energy, the project was constantly growing and developing!” Naturally.

Felting = Feeling!
Among the many artists participating in Karmanoia's Meta Maze at Doloris, Esther Valk contributed a very special artwork to our installation in Tilburg: Felted sculptures. We immediately fell in love with this special material.

After having graduated from Eindhoven Fashion and Industrial Design Academy, Esther discovered the technique of how woolen fibres can be turned into felt. Thus, her passion for a this particular handcraft was born. In the process of wet felting, wool is compressed with hot water under manual pressure. This creates a very sturdy and flexible material. Felting is physically hard work, but the results are always rewarding. It combines design, painting and sculpturing, as it smoothly merges colours into three dimensional objects that can be used for a wide range of purposes.

In the creation process of our Meta Maze, at Doloris in Tilburg, we have cooperated with many gifted artists. Grateful for their inspiring impact on the project, we gladly spread the word about their work.

Esther Valk is a designer and visual artist from Eindhoven. Ever since her childhood, she has been in love with working with textile. Wool and natural fibres are her favourite material, which she enjoys turning into felt. Oh, that touch! Created partly in her studio, partly on-site, Esther has contributed large felt sculptures to the Meta Maze.

She remembers: “Working in the Meta Maze was a great experience because it was so powerful to work with the dynamic artists of Karmanoia." Likewise!
