Artist Biography and CV

BIOGRAPHY

born in Durban, South Africa

Lives and works in Berlin

 

Cate Wind creates sculptures and installations that reveal correlations between modern knowledge and ancient systems of belief. Trained in the craftsmanship of glass, traditional painting, and visual communication, Wind assembles refined materials such as metal, glass, or resin with discarded found objects including gearwheels, vintage herbariums, or religious textiles.

 

During her formative childhood in South Africa she developed a fascination with naturopathic medicine, voodoo, and ceremonial rituals. Energy and its transformation are constant topics in her work. Cate creates hybrid sculptures in which her interest in quantum mechanics and metaphysics as well as her research of  folk medicine, ancient symbols and alternative healing practices interlock.
