The sculptor Kerstin Vicent was born in Karl-Marx-Stadt in 1961 and grew up in Annaberg-Buchholz. Already as a child woods of all kinds were her favorite toys and she formed them in imaginative beings.
From 1978 she took part in painting and graphic arts courses and participated in exhibitions. After passing the A-level and graduating as a construction worker, she completed an architectural study at the Technical University of Dresden and has run her own architectural office in Berlin since 1996. In addition to her freelance job as an architect she has worked in various artistic techniques.
For 17 years now the artist has been working exclusively as a freelance creative sculptor and participates annually in international sculpture symposia. Kerstin Vicent is a member of the Professional Association of Fine Artists Berlin. She mainly produces sculptures and objects of wood. In public space she often produces „usable art“ such as seating landscapes and playful objects. For children’s libraries, medical practices etc. she designs and builds imaginative spatial objects as well.
