I have received these amazing pieces of work from Katja Prins – thank you so much for sending it to me.
Here is her website – with more information and images of her work.
She alwo send me her statement: “My work is about the (intimate) relationship between human bodies and mechanic devices, (medical) technology and industry.
With my work I want to tell stories about the body, the body as an
instrument, as a machine – instruments/machines as extensions of the body.
I’m also fascinated by the way we manipulate our bodies.
These days our body is something we can change, sculpt.
Our body as an extension of our mind, always in relationship with its surroundings and environment.
After all, Man, more in particular his body, is the measure of all things.
One story leads to another – I always start with ideas, shapes and atmospheres and while I’m working, the piece comes into existence.
In this manner, my work is a constant switch between rationale and intuition.
My ambition is that people will discover their own stories through my work, therefore I steer clear of too many explanations and clarifications.
Shapes and materials are never unequivocal and one can interpret them in different ways.”
