I really can’t find out too much about Katrien Vogel but that doesn’t stop me from loving her works. She is based in the Netherlands and was a part of the 2012 Paper Biennial Rijswijk at the Museum Rijswijk as well.
Amoebas! I went into Google Translate to try to figure out her materials and it looks like pencil and thread…and foam? I’m not sure I trust the translator though, to be fair, we’ve made some weird things out of self-hardening foam in our day.
These look almost skeletal – like som odd invertebrate.
I love these with color selectively distributed throughout the inside! It reminds me of a cast you’d have put on your arm in elementary school that all your friends wrote on. But for what creature?
They look like cement, or polished concrete too – I just love the shapes.
The pods even look great oblong as opposed to rounded. I wonder if she uses an armature or not. Katrien, if you’re out there let us know!
Again I feel like this is some odd bone we never knew we had! It’s close enough up though that I think I can see the thread in it though to be fair my pupils are still fully dilated from the eye doctor today!
