Series 'A painter's house'  © Karin Borghouts, 2017 - 2018  archival pigment print

Karin Borghouts photography  - Mieke Teirlinck paintings

Karin Borghouts shows a new series of photos: ‘A painter’s house’.
 After his death, the house of the painter Marten Melsen (1870-1947) was inhabited by his daughters. The sisters continued to live there until they were well into their eighties. They kept the house intact, as their father left it behind.The photos of these authentic interiors offer a view to a time that is not too far behind us, but yet has ended. Through her art painters education, and also due to a beautiful light, Karin Borghouts knows how to unveil this photogenic environment with a special and empathic sensitivity.
Karin Borghouts is an artist photographer best known for her series The house, photos of her burned parental house.
The recent paintings by Mieke Teirlinck depict a great sensitivity to traumatic memories.

The title of the exhibition refers to the book 'L'œuvre au noir' (Het hermetisch zwart), a historical novel by Marguerite Yourcenar (the first female member of the Académie Française) in which she describes the tragic fate of the Flemish sixteenth-century physician, alchemist and philosopher Zeno. The inspiration for the exhibition refers to the moment in alchemy in which everything becomes charred.
