Boon Elke Andreas - Virginie
2000 - Photograph on dibound - 80 x 120 cm
Visual artist Elke Andreas Boon (Ghent, Belgium) makes photos, drawings, video work and music. With this she builds installations in which she confronts different works. Elke Andreas Boon's oeuvre has a fundamental duality. She shows the vulnerable and the rebellious. As an artist, she has the power to expose those many hard-to-determine human sensitivities and elevate them to an aesthetic awareness. Her work combines a poetic and escapist imagination with a raw vision of our condition humaine. There is no perfection in the world that Elke Andreas Boon creates. It is a world of desperation and imperfection, but that is precisely why it is beauty and a sense of freedom.
