The structure of Western easel painting (a wooden frame on which a fabric is stretched) is often a constituent of Edith Dekyndt’s pieces. She uses these elements as a kind of com-mitment to the figurative non-representation of the world and manipulates them as silent revelations of the materials of which the world is made. The materiality of Winter Drums is inspired both by the animal skins used for thousands of years to make objects (musical instruments, clothing) and by the flat blown glass used in windows since the Middle Ages.
