Edith Dekyndt lives and works in Tournai, Belgium. For over two decades, Dekyndt has created a large repertoire of single channel video projections, slide projections, sculptures and sound works, all of which are characterized by a sparse but playful aesthetic. Her video works counterpoise the methodical explorations of experimental video with a skeptical and deliberately erratic approach to minimalism. Since 1999, Dekyndt's installations have been produced under the umbrella of a Universal Research of Subjectivity, a consciously humorous phrase that functions both as an association - established in 2004 - and as a generative pseudonym that provides a speculative framework for her videos, sculptures and installations. Her numerous exhibitions include La trahison des images, Pallazzo Franchetti, Venice Biennial (2001); The Weather, Charles H. Scott Gallery, Vancouver (2004): Brussels South Airport, Krinzinger Projekte, Vienna (2005); One Second of Silence, Parker's Box Gallery, New York (2008), Present Perfect, Program Gallery, Berlin (2008); Political Minimal, KW Institute for Contemporary Art, Berlin (2008); Show Me, Don't Tell Me, Brussels Biennial (2008); and Nos (Us), Museu da República, Rio de Janeiro (2009). In 2006, Dekyndt's work was shown at Witte de With as part of the group exhibition Satellite of Love, as well as the solo show Agnosia in 2009.
