Dirk Braeckman Will Represent Belgium Pavilion at the 57th Venice Biennale

11 months ago

The Photographer Dirk Braeckman will represent Belgium Pavilion at the 57th Venice Biennale, his exhibition will be curated by Eva Wittocx and featured with M – Museum Leuven .

His exhibition at the Belgium pavilion will show his huge, monumental, and at the same time, intimate photographs that will dialogue tightly with the space of the Pavilion itself. Braeckman experiments different materials, textures and combined uses of over and under exposures that make his images definitely entangling.

The artist is creating a new set of works that will  be shown for the first time in Venice and, in early 2018, will be the body of works for a double show at BOZAR in Brussels and M – Museum in Leuven.

“Participating in the Venice Biennale feels like a victory for Belgian photography, which has never had a broad international platform within the visual arts. Nowadays, everyone is capable of taking good photographs and people are only really interested in the end results. I oppose this trend by emphasizing a process-centred exploration. My photos are like unexploded bombs, charged and full of pent-up energy.” Dirk Braeckman.
