"Contrasts captivate me. They allow me to complicate my existence. Such surfaces turn into intense energetic knots in which the relation between body and thing is crucial – the life hiding in the thing and the thing-like quality of the body. In my work, these two components began to slowly intertwine into a single cyborg “woman-machine”, into a woman whose body is shot through with history."
"I am in the final phase of my first book. This collection is already dear to me. Not only the photo works of the last 4 years will be included, but also my stories about my works and other themes. Shooting for this series, which was 4 years in the making, Kaat Stieber made use of various locations and a variety of different media. Photos of objects, still life and people are shot at her studio. The scenery is found on her travels and on walks through nature. Kaat carries her camera with her wherever she goes. A beautiful sky, a lonely tree or a solitary cow, she captures the images to add them to her private collection."
