Edith Dekyndt (b. 1960) is a Belgian artist whose works offer sensory experiences based on the careful observation of the material and the cultural contexts that encompass it. Processual and conceptual in nature, his approach is interested in the objects, often ordinary, that make up everyday life and their transformation through contact with natural and architectural environments. His installations and performances integrate organic and machined objects, photographs, videos, sound and light, which occupies a central place in his work.
This work brings together a large body of work, corresponding to a new cycle in his work, from the major Wiels exhibition in Brussels in 2016 to the windows surrounding the Rotunda of the Bourse de Commerce in Paris.
