Line Boogaerts is a Belgian visual artist fascinated by the way in which we understand reality. In her practice, she investigates how our experience of looking, our perception, is always constructed. Her work largely revolves around the creation of temporary drawings on windows with brushes, window wipers, tinted oil and soap. Necessarily site-specific, her works often interact with the historical, social and/or psychological contexts of a given architectural space.
The title of her exhibition in STUK, Flashlight Equipment, refers to clouds and explosions. With the historical use of the building as a chemistry lab in mind, Boogaerts imagines and visualizes how falling in love changes our perception, putting everything in a different light.
Line Boogaerts is a Belgian visual artist, living and working in Mechelen. Her drawings, performances, films, animated videos and video installations have recently been shown at a.o. BUDA Kortrijk, Muhka Antwerp, Vooruit Ghent, KVS Brussels, Art Exchange, University of Essex – Colchester (UK), Fondazione 107, Turin and Filmfestival Rotterdam, NL. She graduated in 2010 from The Royal Academy of Fine Arts (KASK, Ghent) and is a 2012 HISK (higher Institute for fine arts) laureate. She is a resident at the Cas-co studio’s since June 2019.
Since the Fall of 2017, Cas-co and STUK work together on a presentation platform for visual artists whereby the work of Cas-co residents (N+1 & STUDIO) is on view in STUKcafé in a series of curated solo presentations.
