About the Author

The discriminating gaze of Amie Dicke (Rotterdam, 1978) reveals associations and resonances that might otherwise go undetected. Whether she’s cutting and altering fashion magazines, blowing up obscure portions from forgotten studio portraits or painstakingly covering books with layers of powdered make-up, Dicke’s practice is characterised by judicious deletion, selection and removal. Her work has appeared in institutions including Tate Modern in London and Schirn Kunsthalle in Frankfurt.

Currently based in Amsterdam, she found her approach while still a student at the Willem de Kooning Academie in Rotterdam when she used marzipan and icing to cast the negative space between her legs – rendering herself at once visible and invisible. With How sweet is the space between my legs, Dicke signalled her profound and enduring interest in presence and absence, solids and voids.
