For her first solo show in Brussels, staged by Galerie Nathalie Obadia - and her second solo show in Belgium, three years after her previous solo show ‘Hungry Eyes’, at the FOMU in Antwerp - Valérie Belin is presenting a new set of photographs.
The exhibition revolves around works from the Still Life series, in which Valérie Belin shows us for the first time her own ‘collection’, lush and dreamlike. Her new ‘still lifes’ are put into perspective with the black and white photographs from the Interiors series - which uses the same solarization process - and form a completely coherent dialogue. The almost obsessive accumulation of objects is the grand finale linking the two series. The point is that both in her Still Life and in her Interiors, Valérie Belin takes us to the very edge of the border between disturbing reality and fantasy.
