Guda Koster, the artist of fabrics

Guda Koster is a Dutch artist who creates living sculptures and performances, of which many of her series feature a discussion with pattern, between the subject in her photographs and the space around them. In her works Koster uses fabrics, colours and patterns. The result is a surrealist depiction of masked bodies becoming one with their backgrounds. Sewing the cloth herself, Koster builds most of her installation or sculptures by hand.

Clothing doesn’t just have a function but also conveys a message. In our everyday lives we communicate identity and social position primarily by means of our clothing. Clothing can be seen as a visual art form that expresses the way we see ourselves and our relationship with the world around us.
