Edith Dekyndt was born in 1960 in Ypres, Belgium. Most of Edith Dekyndt’s works depend on an interaction with space and their surroundings. It is not so much the meaning of a project that motivates her as the sense of process. Dekyndt comprehends space in all its dimensions– sound, light, temperature…–revealing what is usually invisible, impalpable, or ephemeral along with the human, anthropological, and historical characteristics of a location. Edith Dekyndt was the second artist to be admitted to the Pinault Collection’s residency in Lens (France), from September 2016 to June 2017.
Her work was included in the exhibition 'Luogo e Segni' (2019) at Punta della Dogana.
