Maria Laet’s work is created by actions and through the results of gestures and subtle interventions, in a practice which involves drawing, engraving, photography and video. These means are like channels, platforms for the artist’s process, like skins, which take in its intentions and reveal the action like an archive. The artworks take place in the concept as well as the physicality of the materials involved, calling attention to the membrane, the space, which connects but at the same time, divides. These encounters are emphasized in the entropic nature of Laet’s work, which tend to seem calm, initially homogenous, but which subtly question the notion of limit.
