DANKE FÜR IHRE WERTVOLLE ZEIT

BEAUFORT LOCATION: SAINT-THERESIA CHURCH, BREDENE

Kati Heck

°1979, Düsseldorf, Germany

Kati Heck loves dressing up and posing. She has herself or people in her environment photographed in self-conscious poses, looking straight at the camera, equipped with all kinds of attributes and costumes. She puts those absurd images on canvas and then adds the finishing touch by means of rough brushstrokes and inexplicable slogans. Danke für Ihre wertvolle Zeit (Thank you for your valuable time) refers to the decay of society. We see eight figures dancing the polonaise, which is to Heck the most uninspired dance par excellence. With their mindless mime the dancers represent the death of every form of reflection and creativity. By also including selfportraits, Heck’s criticism also puts herself into perspective.
