The wearable sculptures by the internationally acclaimed architectural artist Ute Decker are a meditation on the richness of simplicity. She sculpts space, movement, volume and a subtle texture into a carefully composed interplay of light and shadow with a richly evocative sense of space and story. This essential purity is typical of her work in its minimalism and attention to detail.
