STATEMENT Dries Segers’ process-based practice mainly focuses on the idea of an uncontrollable image, self-generating images. He is exploring

the borders between abstract and figurative photography.

Seeing becomes at issue.

 

As with “undecided photographs’, negative analogue film techniques allow
an image from the back of the camera, optics disengages and create an accidental photograph using only light, space and time. The process
becomes the result. Segers always endeavour to enter into collaborations with the unforeseen.

 

Colour produced by science (kelvin) or images generated by sound, movement and memory (a vale of desolation), colour-spectrum at the
blink of your eye (seeing a rainbow). His praxis examines the slowness
of the photographic image that often leaves reality to seek out for its own abstraction and elegance.

 

The wonderment and fascination arises again with the creation of
something where the artist has releases
his supervision and becomes
a spectator himself.

 

Dries Segers (°1990) studeerde aan The Icelandic Academy of the Arts en

de Hogeschool Sint-Lukas Brussel waar hij in 2013 een Master in de beeldende kunsten behaalde. Hij stelde tentoon in o.a. BOZAR,
Fotomuseum Antwerpen, KMSKA, De Warande, Brakke Grond (NL), Listahaskoli (IS), Fotoğraf Vakfı Festival, Istanbul (TR), Warte für Kunst, Kassel (D) en Neue Galerie in Höhmannhaus Augsburg (D).

De Standaard, Weekend Knack, De Morgen, Monopol Magazine, Canvas,
Zonzo Comagnie, Het GEVOLG, De Warande, Villanella,...
