LondonJoëlle Tuerlinckx: Plan B - série b
Joëlle Tuerlinckx visual language is 100% unique and hard to elucidate in words. Her work has been described as “tools of thought”, “means of transit, “constellations on the edge of the visible” (Michael Newman), “emphatically non-metaphorical”, “compiling inventories” (Catherine de Zegher), “parallel museography” (Catherine Mayeur), “a fictive scenario”, “at once studio, gallery, and archive” (Lynne Cooke) and “everything flows into everything else” (Adrian Searle).
Tuerlinckx’s work is site specific, her installations are filled with found objects, drawings, collages, films, slide projections and photographs that are more like spatial experiences than actual artefacts. Every exhibition is based on a precise study of the room and the particular institution or gallery where the work will appear.
Joëlle Tuerlinckx artistic contributions over the decades are extremely compelling and memorable and continue to inspire and challenge, rare and wonderful qualities.
