"Silke Mansholt’s performances move through different disciplines, as sound, movement, the visual and ritual are brought together in an enigmatically powerful mix. She explores the fertile terrain between the visual and the performative, creating works that are at the same time complex and accessible, mysterious and compelling."

Her live art installations are pictures of the hidden, giving the viewer the possibility to question her/his perception of life. It is Mansholt's vocation to work with the soul and it is her aim to heal soul loss and facilitate the healing of wounds.
