"As a souvenir of a dinner with friends I started collecting stains, and decided to embroider them very precisely on a table cloth. This labour intensive work has elevated the stains to a form of decoration; a contradiction to the fact that a stain is usually not something we like to see in our pristine white table linen." MvK
