Sanne Kabalt

Sanne Kabalt is a Dutch artist that works with the medium of photography, often accompanied by writing. When describing what photography does, the verb often used is ‘to capture’ something, though, problematically, this suggests the imprisonment of the subject matter. Once something is captured, it is no longer out there, no longer wild, no longer free. Thematically, she is engaged in the realms of illness, death, madness and loss. In her work she is continuously rethinking photography, striving to unsettle capture. Recent exhibitions include Yellow Brick (Greece), Nes Listamiðstöð (Iceland) and Karthuizerklooster (Belgium), and she has just published her first book, ‘Zolang je niet zo over problemen praat zie je er toch niks van’.
