For several years now we have been observing Rachel de Joode?s work changing states. Materials crystallize, freeze, liquify or evaporate, they are in constant evolution. Even though the artist brings her work to life in the studio, it doesn?t last long as such but molts. The materials sculpted and temporarily assembled are photographed and presented as printed surfaces. This playful and even regressive sculptural practice verges as much on organic collage or digital patchwork than on skin grafts.
