Minne Kersten (b. 1993, NL) lives and works in Amsterdam and Brussels. Her work has a literary approach: she tells visual stories and constructs sculptural environments that support these stories or add to their reading and interpretation. She works with installations, videos, sculptures and painting which form the backdrop of a fictional world. In this world, which has its own often absurd logic that blurs the boundaries of reality and the imagined, people, objects and architectural elements find new relationships with each other.
Her work considers the relationship between the real and the imagined, the ordinary and the uncanny - by staging situations in self-constructed filmsets that are subdued to chaos, decay or deconstruction. Through encompassing installations, her filmic and sculptural works explore themes of loss, grief and symbolism.
