Telling the story together over time
Meandering through the exhibition I’m struck by the craftmanship of the works, the intricate details, the love for and knowledge of the materials. I marvel at the sheer expansion of the different techniques used and the number of different projects on show, I mean the artist is 31 years old and has only graduated recently.
When I finally browse throught the booklet she and her sister and art historian Marieke van Ekeren created to accompany the exhibition, a true work of art in itself, I realise she doesn’t shy away from critcal reflection either. It feels like she continues the story that Constant started telling, taking it in her own direction without abandoning the plot. Within the goals of Constant 101 in mind this exhibtion is everything I could have wishes for. A reflection, new perspectives, critical thoughts and beautiful and thought provoking work. In my humble opinion Kitty Maria embodies both the Femina Ludens and the Femina Universalis.
