Three Graces (de Drie Gratiën) 2010

The Three Graces are three pretty sisters from Greek mythology. Nico Parlevliet let the Three Graces represent by three rotating feather dusters, as a metaphor for both feminine elegance and cleanliness. The work also gets something sensual because the feather dusters are touching the drums if it were the brushes of a jazz drummer, with a very soft sound and each in its own rhythm.
