Fata Morgana – In Oberlichtsaal
In her solo exhibition “Fata Morgana,” Capucine Vandebrouck unveils the secrets of matter and the aura of the objects in her oeuvre. With the help of installations, the artist makes visible that which is concealed, depicting pure reality through mirroring, reflecting and illuminating. She generates a tension between the power of imagination that engenders her work and the real, which may be perceived only through pure seeing. To create these sensory impressions, she utilizes the various aggregate states of light and light-absorbing salts, in order to put the tangible under the microscope.
Capucine Vandebrouck was a guest of the Kunststiftung Baden-Württemberg (Arts Foundation Baden-Württemberg) in 2014 in the framework of the exchange programme between Baden-Württemberg and the DRAC Alsace. The programme is held in cooperation with the Institut Français Stuttgart and the CEAAC Strasbourg.
The exhibition is presented in the Oberlichtsaal .
