Jelena Vanoverbeek at IFFR
The work of Jelena VANOVERBEEK (1990, Belgium) displays how cultural ideals, social structures, aesthetical types, poetical strategies and sexual symbols determine the Western, collective ‘I’. Vanoverbeek considers her artistic practice and works to be anatomical studies. She uses the medium of ‘montage’ (in a broad sense) to grasp movie scenes or images; a small change or gesture causes a shift or revelation in meaning.
