Backstage Of The Body

de Leen Van Dommelen

In Backstage Of The Body, Leen Van Dommelen dissects the body in a fragile game hovering between cruelty and poetry. Clashing with the limits of the physical body, she examines her fears and shame and takes us to a world where what is usually hidden is suddenly revealed. Shock and shame. Failure and fall.
Her work, made of performances and installations, seeks for confrontation with the eye: the eye of the spectator and the introspective eye. Her oeuvre triggers an ambiguous mechanism where the loss of control becomes one with the acquisition of control.
