Full Description

A visual exploration between the work of acclaimed photographer Dirk Braeckman (1985) and symbolist painter Léon Spilliaert (1881-1946). The omnipresence of the color black, in its myriad shades and nuances, defines their works and adds a nuanced layer to their shared artistic expression. Braeckman’s black-and-white photographs convey a sense of stillness, and combine intimacy and distance to create a private, secluded world whose meaning remains undefined.

Text in English and Dutch.
