During the past year the artist has shifted his artistic activity from the studio towards the confinement of his own house. In this setting, Carremans explores the potential layers of interpretation regarding the objects surrounding him in daily life through drawing research. By combining high and low cultural references in both contemporary and historical contexts, Carremans creates a visual autobiography in which the border between truth and myth fades. “Rien accompli” gives an insight in this ongoing process of domestic creation with a series of new objects and drawings.
Mike Carremans (*1981) born in Koersel (BE), lives and works in Ghent. He studied mixed media and painting at the MAD Faculty Hasselt and completed his PhD in Arts in 2016 at KU Leuven – LUCA School of Arts Ghent
