BelgianArtPrize 2021 : Els Dietvorst

BelgianArtPrize laureate Els Dietvorst (°1964, Kapellen) is a visual artist and filmmaker who lives and works in South East Ireland. Dialogue, experiment and intuition are recurring strategies in her work. Since the 1990s, social issues such as migration, racism and climate change have been fascinating her. She investigates the human condition, which in her oeuvre results in themes such as life and death, fear, alienation and desire.The exhibition This is what you came for is conceived as an encounter and an invitation. The proposal grew out of the almost ritualistic actions and creations that Els Dietvorst started during the Covid-19 lockdown. This is what you came for takes place simultaneously at two venues in Brussels – De Centrale and Bozar – and creates a fluid wave between the two places where one mirrors the other. A mix of sculpture, installation, video and performance will introduce you to the universe of Els Dietvorst, in which she is always looking for connections with people and creates places for encounters. In the framework of the BelgianArtPrize
