Lisette van Hoogenhuyze’s wall pieces and installations consist of multiple layers, patterns and colour arrangements inspired by different visual motifs that appear in leisure culture.
Travelling frequently, the artist developed a particular interest in the way people behave at the beach. The beach is a place of fantasy, for slowing down, daydreaming, sweating and compulsively enjoying the moment.
Interested in the way we are forced to exchange our chosen fashion and identity for a sort of ‘beach uniform’, the artist researches the changes in our behaviour and the way we see each other. Assimilating these universal patterns and visual language, van Hoogenhuyze takes you through different approaches on contemporary culture in a recognizable yet unfamiliar way.
