BelgianArtPrize 2021 laureate Els Dietvorst (°1964, Kapellen) is a visual artist and filmmaker who has been living in Ireland for the last 12 years. Dialogue, experiment and intuition are recurring strategies in her work. Ever since the 1990s, the artist has been moved by social issues such as migration, racism and climate change. 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 C19 lockdown. This is what you came for at CENTRALE and Bozar creates a fluid wave between the two places where one mirrors the other. A myriad of mediums including 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.
