Anouk Vercouter

What does home mean to you?
Funny you should ask, because the same question was running through my mind during the move. Right now you could describe my home as a collage of love. I tend to romanticise objects and tie them to specific events, people or a specific point in time. I surround myself with those things that mean a lot to me: this way I write down my biography on the walls. A picture of my parents when they were young always gets a special place, just like the other objects with similar meaning. For some reason I also value images or the presence of animals, not only are they beautiful, they also sooth me.

How does your interior mirror your work?
I never put something on my wall if it doesn't inspire me. The objects I put on my wall all trigger me when working. By projecting my thoughts on the wall, it becomes a lot easier to make them reality.

Is the building you live in important to you or could you live anywhere?
The building I live in is rather important to me. As an illustrator I value light a lot. I also need a lot of room so I can work on a wall. My previous home was an old manor. When I decided to move because of circumstances, I went looking for something similar. Something with a lot of wood, light and character. Modern buildings aren't my thing. They make me feel like I'm living in a white cube. This "bel-étage" building is more worn down and the past is something that inspires and attracts me.
