Connie Dekker, artist, lives and works in Amsterdam. She specializes in installation using mixed media as embroidery, performance, photography and video. In her embroidery she works on themes of waiting and absence. A series of performances on embroidery were staged and exhibited in Italy. Dekker uses photography and film to document her performances and to capture her environment.
“By focussing on the essence of her experiences, at home and far away places, Dekker commenced a remarkable series of works. Never seeking self-assertive confrontation, the strength lays in the subdued and poetic character of her work which adds much to its poignancy and authenticity.”
