Sarah Westphal. Palimpsest
Stijn Maes (Ed.), Texts by Lut Pil, Antoon Van den Braembussche
Self-Published / Eigen beheer, 2011
First monograph on the work of multidisciplinary artist Sarah Westphal (° 1981), with an essay by Lut Pil and a philosophical reflection by Antoon Van den Braembussche.
In her work Sarah Westphal examines the character of worn out or rotten material, the traces people leave behind in their environment and the play of light and dust particles on the surface of an object. Steadily she is working on a collection of two- and three-dimensional images that walk the thin line between fiction and reality.
Recent and upcoming exhibitions include Ename Actueel (2011), Museum of Fine Arts Ghent (2011, solo) and Kunstenfestival Watou (2010, 2009).
