Kellie Lippens (°1998 BE) investigates the boundary between control and serendipity, daring to leave the safe road is a challenge within her artistic work. During the work process she always looks with new, different eyes, which creates a personal experience that she sees as a journey of discovery and dialogue between herself and her work.
The focus on materiality is strong, she also uses natural clay that she digs up herself, along with self-blown glass and found materials. By letting go of the pursuit of perfection, she gives coincidence a chance, it challenges both herself and the viewer to engage in a different way of thinking, acting and reacting. She is fascinated by the complexity and certain simplicity of nature.
