Greet Van Autgaerden (1974) works and lives in Mechelen
Her work mainly deals with nature/culture issues. From this perspective she focuses on the territorial aspect of landscape and literally and metaphorically digs deeper into the history of the landscape with its geological roots. Her work reflects the way in which we relate to landscape nowadays. Various ideas on this topic are tested in installations in the public space and they feed the sculptures, paintings and drawings.
Because of her preference for large sizes, we are led from merely viewing her work to engaging in active experience of it. The point of view on the one hand and the tension between orientation and disorientation on the other hand are the crucial elements that give the images their meaning, in terms of form as well as content.
