Katharien de Villiers



Katharien does

not send out aggressive rays of sight.

Katharien believes

  • in letting a picture work on you. 
  • in your, the viewer’s participation when confronted with her work, and allowing the encounter to evolve.
  • that “we must all create our own meaning” sensorially, mentally and physically. 

Katharien has

  • an MFA in Installation from KASK, Gent, Belgium. 
  • participated in group exhibitions locally and in Belgium, including ‘Vibrations Off’ at Kristof de Clercq Gallery along with Honore d’O and Manfredo Schu. 
  • had several solo shows at SMITH in Cape Town, as well as in Johannesburg and in her studio. 
  • featured in the Zeitz MOCAA exhibition, ‘Still Here Tomorrow to High Five You Yesterday’.
  • work in the permanent collection of the Nirox Sculpture Foundation.
