KEEP IT UP
LIMITED EDITION OF 18
Artist Guda Koster
Berlin, Germany I 2017
Guda Koster says: 'People have to imagine their own story when they look at my photographs and the title is a guidance.'
Human limits and insecurities, obsessions and fears, vanity and desire are beautifully captured in the humorous and challenging sculpture and photography of Dutch artist Guda Koster.
Using clothing as a statement and confession of her enigmatic figures, stimulating the viewer to look beyond appearance, the artist recreates and reflects psychological, social and behavioral patterns through geometric shapes, textiles, color and repetition. Trapped in their own decadent boxes and waiting for their unfulfilled dreams and promises to set them free, the bearers of multiple possible identities depicted by Guda Koster expose themselves acting as a symbol of today’s paradoxical human condition.
