With Hillu Liebelt’s objects, installations and models the starting point is often the material itself. She loves the process of collecting and connecting, finding suitable partners; a playful act with different materials like handmade paper, silk cocoons, travertine, wire or aluminium, finding the contrast between the hard and the soft, the rigid and the plyable.
