Sarah & Charles

°1981 / °1979, Brussels (BE) – live and work in Brussels (BE)

Sarah & Charles’ s work comprises various forms of arts: installations, decors, sculptures and videos. The artists have a particular interest in narration, fiction and mise-en-scene. In their work, both front and backstage are visible. That way the viewers can at the same time observe the construction of the fiction and the fiction itself. Their entire artistic practise revolves around the creation and simultaneously subversion of illusions.

On the one hand, they stimulate the imagination through the use of images that reflect the illusions fostered by the viewer, on the other hand they constantly dismantle those illusions. Besides staging, memory is also an important theme in the work of Sarah & Charles, memories and the personal experience of it.
