Koba De Meutter

Sep 2017 to Oct 2017
1991 °1992, lives and works in Brussels

Koba De Meutter was selected for the first residency in R.A.T Mexico City in September 2017 and participates in The Living Room XL.

Koba De Meutter’s installations question functionality. She combines architectural elements, found material and sculptures in directed actions and accidental happenings, often in public space. The status of an object as sculpture or tool becomes ambiguous and puts the visitor in a shifting postion of viewer, passer-by or user. All these temporary interventions are documented in photographs. The connection is both a link as a blockade and melts the light with the heavy; the public with the private; the intimate with the anonymous. What is possible? What is real? What do you give away? What do you keep?
