In her work, Amélie Joos questions the states of mind, the emotions of beings and their relationship with each other through different modes of expression.

His artistic practice is anchored in a chimerical world that is both very personal and universal. These hybrid representations range from a girl sleeping in a bird's nest to a hanging golden house with a ladder attached to it.
