Artist Statement

A Belgian artist, her main priority is taking care of and giving new signification to anonymous pictures taken from newspapers.

She studied nursing, music and art, and started her career working in welfare. In 1988 she decided to dedicate herself fully to her artwork. For twenty years she has been assembling an alternative image bank, Provisoria, in which approximately 25,000 digitally-accessible images are ordered by keywords, colours, dates and groups, in an attempt to measure another dimension of newspaper pictures. Taking photos from Provisoria alongside photos and registrations of her own life, Verhaeghe creates new pieces of art, using different media such as collage, drawing, painting, sculptures, threads, slides and experimental video
