boxing and the body.
I cannot tell you much about artist Birgit Dieker because her website is not in English and I am not even sure what language it is in. But she makes some fascinating work.
Most of her work either references the internal body or athletics, often boxing, or both simultaneously.
Many of her materials seem to be inspired from the materials of boxing equipment such as leather gloves, strings, rope, and leather belts.
I would love to know conceptually what she is working with in this work and the connection to boxing.
She manages to make complicated and often very layered work with a minimalists eye.
See much more of her work here.
