Her work is a mix of regularity and intuition, of soft curves and cool metals, of both the force of nature and the preciseness of letters or hieroglyphs.
Just like hieroglyphs her works may consist of only one piece or of more parts.
Whether a single piece work or a combination, her works indeed have the obviousness of a word, in spite of the limited number of shapes she works with.
There is however more to them.
They are not just shapes, they are objects with a surface, such that they will only fully reveal their meanings when you slowly move along them or when the daylight itself slowly moves.
In the present exhibition she shows works of anodised aluminium – in which the aluminium may turn orange –, of hot rolled steel, and prints made of metal shapes, in which – like in a wood block – the surface plays a strong role.
Still the idea of a word, a statement of civilisation within nature, dependent on both light and metal, makes these precise works very precious.
