In the films of Thomas Bogaert (b. 1967 Dendermonde), images that are not spectacular in themselves become very special viewing experiences. This is achieved through the manipulation of the framing, the tempo, the soundtrack, and above all through the special colour and film qualities of the Super-8 movies. A seemingly banal daily moment is charged by Thomas Bogaert with a cinematic tension and atmosphere. Film stills then in turn become the starting point for "painting-objects". In this way, Thomas Bogaert takes the play with the physical and mental layeredness of the image steadily further.
