Edith Dekyndt, lives and works in Tournai and Berlin
Dekyndt's works appeal to us through their strong material and corporeal character, and despite their sometimes dematerialised and abstract appearance, taking the form of video recordings, slide projections or minimal installations, they always tell us about the material composition of the world. Dekyndt designs complex forms and surfaces in permanent mutation, through associations between material, environment and support. She applies biochemical, organic or non-organic processes on unusual supports, combining the abstract and the concrete, the particular and the universal.
