“Words Do Things.”Minke dedicates herself to words and text as an individual art form. Using the enormous plasticity of the text and the introduction of rich research, combined with sound, image, color, and meditation, it transforms between the visual and logic. Language materializes worlds. It makes realities. The artist has also participated in many public art projects, expanding the practice of anthropological knowledge and integrating art into the daily lives of the people.
