OF ME AND YOU

Daphne van de Velde studied at the ArtEZ University of the Arts and the Fotoacademie Amsterdam where she graduated Cum Laude.
With her body, she explores the border as a transition zone between the internal and the external, using the skin as a metaphor. She is a multimedia artist, distorting and playing with the flat surface of the photograph, manipulating it to construct a fragile sculpture.
She visualizes boundary experiences of intimacy and sexuality, the vulnerable, tender body and its desire and longing. The photographic sculptures give an opening to experience a sexual field of tension.
A fight or an act of love, in her work it is never quite clear what the body is involved in.
