Bram de Jonghe
°1985, Oostende (BE) – lives and works in The Hague (NL)
Bram de Jonghe has come to believe that imagination should not have a fixed point; it can gravitate around certain areas of strong interests, around certain compelling territories. In this way each project is conceived from the inside out. It is the content that creates the form and not the other way around.
De Jonghe believes in man as creator, solver, and finder. The gestures he likes to make as an artist are not merely aesthetic or originated from a critical attitude towards art history. He favours the visual residue of do-it-yourself spirituality. He embraces complex ideas that lend themselves to clumsy visualisations, which humanise their coded beauty. De Jonghe is a practical dreamer who wants to stimulate the intuitive wisdom of each and every individual.
Bram de Jonghe shows his work internationally, including exhibitions at Netwerk Aalst; P/////akt Amsterdam; Stroom The Hague; DMW, Antwerp; 1646, The Hague; Coup De Ville, Sint-Niklaas; and Stedelijk Museum Schiedam.
