Guda Koster is a Dutch artist who creates living sculptures and performances, which the photographs are the results of. Koster’s works are created in parallels of time, space and textile.In her works Koster uses fabrics, colours and patterns that underline the codes and meanings our clothing conveys.
The identity of the models with covered faces encrypts their relation to the environment — their costumes have either matched or contrasted with the surrounding with the interior in a series of colorful works. Pictures of Guda Koster are full of irony and mild criticism of the mystery that makes the viewer want to know more.
