Picture this: Elke Andreas Boon
16/01/2011 - 13/03/2011
Elke Andreas Boon (Ghent) became known in the late 1990’s with her fragile photographic portraits of youngsters. In recent years, however, she has mainly focused on the investigation of the self-portrait, and this by means of drawings, photographs and video. Her work combines a poetic and escapist imagination with a raw vision of our human condition. With her work she tries to deal with the fragility and pain of humanity in a very personal way so as to free herself from the established social power structures.
In addition to presenting a series of recent photographs and drawings, Elke Andreas Boon will also create a site specific installation in which she sublimates her most personal feelings into an ephemeral experience of beauty.
