Memory in progress - Emma Boeyaert
18|06|2021 - 29|06|2021
Emma Boeyaert graduates in the Educational Master Visual Arts in Ghent. Her work evolved from images to conceptual performative and participatory projects. She examines the tensions between the power of a moment and the memory that remains of it, between the power of the rehearsed and the fragility of the spontaneous.
There is an elusive charge in these paintings. It is inconvenience, unrecognizability, a dormant doom. The images equate to moments that don't want to reveal their context and that make you feel for understanding. The mix between the academic painting style and sometimes toxic colors could be the source of this disaster.
