°1976, lives and works in Antwerp
The starting point for Katleen Vinck’s sculptural work is her extreme fascination for architecture. Its foundations are often the last, imperishable remainders of long-lost civilizations. What Vinck desires to show is not the loss, but the beauty of what is temporary. Her work is futuristic rather than post-apocalyptic. Everything transforms into something new overtime, carrying layers of past lives. Her sculptures are rarely finished constructions or singular monuments, but rather appeal to that translucid, ungraspable moment of transformation. She works with the essence of archetypical architectural elements, functioning as residues and new beginnings all at once.
