Femke Dekkers

Amsterdam, NL

Allowing painting, sculpture and photography to intersect within – and with – different architectural spaces, Femke Dekkers (b. 1980, the Netherlands) constructs installations which are subsequently flattened by the act of taking a photograph. In doing so, her work plays on a tension between the physicality of her creations and the inherent two-dimensionality of the camera. Made largely from her ever-growing stock of materials found in flea markets, DIY stores and second-hand shops, Dekkers’ photographs refuse to settle on a singular perspective and instead establish new, alternative spatial readings.
