Two years after her disappearance in a boating accident on the Mahakam River, on her way to explore deep forest in Kalimantan, Indonesia, the first solo exhibition of work by young Dutch artist Danaë Moons was realised in Amsterdam. Published for the occasion, this book gathers her diverse oeuvre, from prints and film stills to sculptural objects, in turn reflecting her fascination with nature, stones, and the jungle. Through abstract and organic forms, she sought to express the confrontation between humans and the world around them, and pursued her deep desire to understand the foundations of this often paradoxical relationship. With a poignant text by Hans den Hartog Jager.
