Katrien De Blauwer’s approach is quite unique. Collecting and recycling photographic images from magazines, she draws on her own interior world of memories and feelings to spontaneously create exquisite and intimate artworks that appeal to our collective unconscious and evoke the language of film, surrealism and photomontage. Having been producing artworks almost daily for over 20 years, De Blauwer remains a very private person and only in recent years has begun to exhibit and sell her work. Her first UK solo retrospective at Ffotogallery, from 26 October – 8 December 2018, includes work from all stages of her career, including previously unseen early work, artist notebooks and her newest work in which she has introduced painting alongside photography. The curatorial approach will not be chronological, but reveal specific visual correspondences and motifs that have recurred as her work evolved from highly personal narratives to more universal concerns.
