In her practice, Herman examines the relationships and intimacy between people, what brings them together or sets them apart, and how physical proximity to others is a human necessity. Her main artistic focus lies on the intimacy within families, with a special interest in sibling relationships. In part, this interest has developed from her own family circumstances—growing up without siblings and always wondering what it would be like to have a brother or sister. With the works Herman attempts to get a deeper understanding of how this intimacy between siblings forms, how it manifests itself and how it can be expressed.
Between Us consists of three longterm projects focussing on the siblings: Stephanie & Julia, Fred & Archie and Jana & Feby.
