Anne Daems, born in 1966, creates photographs, drawings, videos and installations as a way of navigating through our complex world. She focuses on the everyday details of life and pulls them into the light, where they are meticulously analysed. Daems dissects reality into fragile fragments full of meaning and beauty. There are no grand gestures in her work, there is no spectacle – nothing is important, and yet everything has meaning.
Anne Daems attended Sint-Lukas School of Arts in Brussels, as well as Amsterdam Rijksacademie. In 1999 she won the Prijs Jonge Belgische Schilderkunst, the precursor of the Belgian Art Prize. She lives and works in Brussels.
