Dirk Braeckman

Photographer of the darkening, of the vanishing: this is how one might describe Dirk Braeckman. His photographs tell us nothing about the world and stay mum about their maker. They are dark, hazy, blurred, highly suggestive. They are not here to show us something: they offer no spectacle, no new insight, no revelation. They are enigmas wrapped in black, hovering somewhere between us and the world.
For his exhibition Dirk Braeckman will present a site-specific wall work.
