18.04.24 – 28.04.24, #159 Kato Bouckaert, Karen Van Hassel, Tracing Spaces

Because we have shared a studio for more than four years, our work has an undeniable influence on each other. For the MAP project, we underline common subjects and images, although we worked individually. Using our personal image collections, we explore dialectical and comparative strategies, each with a different result.

Kato's image bank consists primarily of her own photographs of out-of-context objects that feel strange or uncomfortable. Karen's collection consists of subgroups formed by free associations with subjects such as theater, objects of Catholic narrative culture, performative identities and Internet culture.

In relation to each other, the images acquire meaning, new connotations, form characters or a (fictional) place is sought.
