Janneke Raaphorst (@janicka_ravenhirst) is an artist and designer from the Netherlands.
As a textile wizard she works with sourcing material and its stories, embodiment through craft and infusing experience with meaning through ritual and storytelling. She celebrates the glory of decay, exploring the patina of the world. Her videos result from personal rituals. With power objects or framing items as artefacts she works with the personally economical and emotional charge of textiles as objects.
