Solo exhibition at CC Strombeek, curated by Charlotte Crevits

In September 2021, CC Strombeek presented 3 exhibitions on drawing. The artists An Roovers, Obi Okigbo and Nel Maertens each shape the medium in their own way. The exhibitions were presented as part of the Brussels Drawing Week (14 -19 September), in which about 40 cultural institutions in and around Brussels put contemporary drawing in the spotlight.

Arts with benefits
Master collection 2019

During my studies at the fashion academy in Antwerp, I was interested in the grey zone between fashion and art.

Is fashion art? Not necessarily looking for a readymade answer, I aimed to create silhouettes in which fashion and visual art meet. Working closely together with visual artists sounded fascinating to me, so I asked artist duo Flexboj & L.A. to join me in this project. They paint, make installations and are the founders of Superstars Magazine.

Honoring the history of painting, we created woven, knitted, and drawn prints, using a visual language that borders parody.
