Elke Van Kerckvoorde

Elke Van Kerckvoorde (Gent 1992) studeerde aan Luca School of Arts te Gent (Master Beeldende Kunst 2014).

Binnen het ontwikkelingsprogramma van Kunsthal Gent werkt ze aan een project op de grens van beeldende kunst, grafisch ontwerp en ambacht, in samenwerking met glas in lood-atelier Mestdagh en met verschillende kunstenaars en ontwerpers. Albert Mestdagh, oprichter van het glasatelier, leerde het vak in het Patershol, om de hoek van het voormalige klooster waar Kunsthal Gent gevestigd is. In 1947 startte hij zijn eigen atelier, dat verschillende generaties verder sinds kort gevestigd is in Merelbeke onder leiding van kleindochter Katrien Mestdagh.

Van Kerckvoorde, aanvankelijk schilder, gebruikt in haar werk uiteenlopende grafische technieken. Ze duwt het grafische ambacht steeds verder weg van haar oorspronkelijke definitie en maakt zo de grens tussen beeldende kunst en ambacht diffuus.

Werkperiode ontwikkelingsprogramma: oktober t/m december 2019
Q&A met Elke van Kerckvoorde: vrijdag 25 oktober, 20:00
