Re/pro/ducing Complexity presents drawings and drawing-related works by Nelleke Beltjens, Hedwig Brouckaert, and Jorinde Voigt. In recent years all three artists have emerged on the international scene with demanding and innovative approaches in the medium of drawing.
Beltjens, Brouckaert, and Voigt address this theme of complex and intricate reality and the perception of it, each using their own means.
Nelleke Beltjens understands her drawings as metaphors for the incomprehensibility of life, human existence and its conditions; Hedwig Brouckaert works with redundant visual material, such as that disseminated by the mass media, which she alienates and ‘neutralises’ with her selections and layerings. In diagram-like drawings, Jorinde Voigt develops new structures of order and relationships between selected areas of reality, creating spaces for the viewer’s imagination in this way.
