Krista van der Niet

The Netherlands, The Hague LhGWR

The work of Krista van der Niet (1978) emerges from a dreamlike state of mind, whereby her imagination brings the things around her to life. She seems to glide along the lightness of things and grasps the beauty of the pure object. During the making process objects gain a metaphysical layer of meaning. She is the guiding factor for the viewpoint of her audience, in order to convey her perception. At this moment the sculptor becomes a photographer and you stand still together with her.

Van der Niet has recently exhibited at ACF, het Bijbels Museum, Cobra Museum, Buitenplaats Beeckestijn and Foam.
