Edith Dekyndt Ombre Indigene

Idea Code 16122

Born 1960 in Ypres, Belgium, Edith Dekyndt lives and works in Tournai, Belgium. Her practice embraces video, drawing and sculpture. It is grounded in a meticulous observation of natural forces and physical phenomena, as they take place on a daily basis, but not always visually appear to us. Her experiments do not relate to any scientific analyses but are presented as figures of contemplation and reflection. This book is published on the occasion of the eponymous double exhibition at Le Consortium, Dijon, between October 2015 and January 2016, and at Wiels, Brussels, from February 5 to April 24, 2016. These two exhibitions do not include any identical work, and their organisation follows different directions, thus denying the “free exchange” rule of the travelling exhibition often at work in artistic events.
