Our exhibition „Patterns of identity“ continues in 2023. in picture works by
This work is part of our current exhibition "Patterns of Identity", a group exhibition displaying artists from different geographies, perspectives and trajectories.
In this show, we have included a selection of artists in which practices we can see an allusion of "patterns" that forge us as a society and as a collective group, whose beliefs, traditions, symbols and values construct our cultural identity and our sense of belonging.
Ethel Coppieters was born in Brussels in 1996. Her work portrays women whose faces and bodies evoke mixed feelings. Ethel’s characters possess a mysterious beauty, with delicate, almost apathetic faces that reveal the traces left by suffering.
Inspired by the women around her, the figures that she creates are nourished by classic feminine references with highly contemporary narrative elements, such as accessories, clothes and current objects that reflect the identity of our generation.
Through these portraits of women with deconstructed body proportions, freed from the mandates of beauty we know, the artist recreates dreamlike scenes to speak about the intimate and the universal.
