As part of the A ppr oc he photo fair, the Filles du Calvaire gallery will exhibit some thirty works by Katrien de Blauwer in the space of the Galerie christian berst art brut. Often described as a “photographer without a camera”, Katrien de Blauwer (Belgium, 1969) focuses her practice on collage. The process is spontaneous and responds to the plastic artist’s fascination for the construction of images. In her work, it is always a question of the female figure through magazine pages that bears witness to a bygone era. The artist cuts out, disfigures the published photograph, glues, sometimes adds a trace of paint on it. A story is put together from this raw material, taken from old magazines whose images the artist recycles.
