Rebekka Vanderhaeghen (1984) - Brussels

Ode to the authenticity

Impermanence and loneliness at the heart, are the motive of the work of artist Rebekka Vanderhaeghen. The strength and beauty of it take shape in photography, installations and tableaux vivants.

The eternal battle between Eros and Thanatos, the use of Clair-obscur and the intensity of emotional expressions are key in her work that characterizes it.

Vanderhaeghen's work has several layers and reveals itself slowly to the public. She creates unique, occasionally strange worlds in which she sculpts bodies as it were objects.The research is as important as the result.

Her sensitivity to aesthetics and poetry was imparted on her from birth by her mother Kaat Tilley (fashion designer / artist).

Berlinde De Bruyckere, Anselm Kiefer, Edward Hopper, Francis Bacon, David Lynch, Stanley Kubrick and Joseph Beuys, ... are artists that influenced her work.
