The artist: Carine Altermattfrom Brussels (BEL)
Born in 1976 (France), Carine Altermatt is a visual artist based in Brussels since 2004.
“We do not always know where Carine Altermatt sets the boundary between Art and Design, probably due to the fact that her starting point is always one of those extremely familiar settings that we no longer notice: a living room, bedroom, entry … However, it is often in this domestic context that the design shifts, altering between function and use. This is where her practice starts, hence the confusion, that she maintains intentionally.” (excerpt from Daily Drama, a text by F.D., 2012)
