Description - Breath by Katrin Dekoninck

Katrin Dekoninck is an all-round artist, showing mankind in raw honesty and lonely separation. Though the focus of this book is on her life-sized sculptures in clay, she is also skilled in drawing, painting and traditional (non-computer made) animation. Her technical strength makes her images breath. Serene and with simplicity, she shapes her universe of searching people. Themes such as "identity" and "aging" link her oeuvre to the poetry of Steven Van Der Heyden. With words he tries to find a way to make connections, to start a dialogue. His poems were written in interaction with Katrin's sculptures. Together they make an organic unity of words and images. A fascinating encounter artfully captured through the lens of photographer Stef De Belder. 96 colour images
