Maud Oonk makes performances composed of an emotional involvement towards formal structures. The construction it all results into deliberately shapes to look for authentic desires and to open-up a play-field in everyday life. Her method is to work with criteria for an attitude and power of judgment, to emancipate oneself from assumptions, prejudices, expectations and habitations. She opens up different formal situations by mirroring the different roles a person has to take in that is other then in his/her personal life.

This year she started to develop a project by translating different jobs that are existing in modern western-society; like a barista, McDonald burger maker, the manager, fitness instructor, healthy guru, an artist and many more. The goal of the project is to develop a series of performances about the different roles and acts that one has to take to practice his/her job. For the performance in W139 she will become an IKEA employee. The performance is created through observing, taking notes and makes drawings.
