Renée (° 1989) lives and works in Brussels. She captures a world full of contrasts, memories in nowadays. Emptiness and fullness, day and night, white against deep black backgrounds. Coolness and heat, burning ice. The present and the absent. Isolation vs connectedness. Fictional worlds to overthink reality, vulnerability and resilience. Creaking discomfort in down, a sensory touch in a flat image. A glimpse, an error, disturbance, the lyrical. Distance, yet close framing. Everything is strange, yet daily and known.
