But a still life is not about lifeless objects or about the absolute stillness of a world without human meaning, according to arts and architecture philosopher Bart Verschaffel. He says: “In the painter’s workshop the objects might be motionless, but in his painting they move.”
After her last creation 11 Seconds, in which she let audiences stare at a photo of a museum for an hour in a playful thought experiment about art, Charlotte Bouckaert now turns her gaze onto daily life in You Are an Object to Me. Her question: how can we challenge the ideas of stillness and immobility that surround objects?
Charlotte Bouckaert has been developing a visual language on the cusp of visual arts and live performance for a decade now. By staging images as a changing process, she invites her audience to become aware of the impact of their own observation. Her work takes various shapes, including plays, performances, installations, and video.
