The works of Marie Cloquet (1976, Ghent) invariably challenge both the artist herself and the spectator into a mental adventure. She creates her oeuvre through collages, photography, and video. The starting point for most her works are her travels which take her to all corners of the world, or, quite contrarily, the notion of loneliness and the urge to withdraw from the world’s hustle and bustle. Shelter-like structures made from discarded materials often appear in her work, as a metaphor for life’s chaos and the need for protective structures.
