Kristien Daem has been an independent photographer, documenting art and architecture, since the 1980s. Throughout her career Kristien Daem’s work gradually evolved into a critical investigation of the medium of photography in the representation of art. She focuses on unrealized, unfinished or unfulfilled artwork from the conceptual sixties. By means of case studies she questions the originality and ownership of images and concepts by other artists. In addition, she questions her own authorship. Until recently, Kristien Daem’s photographs mostly did without people. Today she embraces the tradition of portraiture in art and photography in an ongoing series on the (re)presentation of women in the art world. She lives in Brussels, Belgium.
TEN WOMEN / DIX FEMMES / TIEN VROUWEN / ZEHN FRAUEN is the third stage of the portrait series. On the occasion of this new publication, the eponymous exhibition will take place at INBOX, MUHKA from 31 August until 24 September 2023.
