CHLOE DELANGHE (b.1991, Ostend) is a visual artist living and working in Brussels. Delanghe’s practice is focused mainly on photography and film/video. Her work invites us to contemplate the mechanisms of the camera and the role they play in (re)constructing and fictionalising memory and family. Blurring contemporary and archaic photographic genres, her work often examines the act of looking itself.
Delanghe is currently developing a mid-length film, Hexham Heads in collaboration with Mattijs Driesen, which received support from ARGOS through the ARGOS 2020 open call and from Kunstendecreet. Delanghe will be artist in residence at Cité Internationale des Arts in Paris from July-September 2022, working on a new photobook.
Her first book, titled Reasons to Be Cheerful, was published in 2016 by WIELS and Motto Books. She was awarded a VOCATIO award for Fine Arts in 2021.
Her work has been exhibited internationally in De Brakke Grond in Amsterdam, WIELS in Brussels, TOKAS Hongo in Tokyo, SIZE Matters in Vienna, Extracity Kunsthal in Antwerp, S.M.A.K. in Ghent, ING Art Centre in Brussels, Beursschouwburg in Brussels, and screened at film festivals / art centres such as EMAF in Osnabrück, AT HOME WITH in Espoo, CINEMATEK in Brussels, Visions du Réel in Nyon, Courtisane in Ghent.
