Heide Hinrichs

Year and place of birth: 1976, Oldenburg, Germany Location: Brussels, Belgium

The works of Heide Hinrichs are fragile and subtle. It is not possible to decipher them quickly. They demand time and attention, and invite us to observe them in silence. Tactility is an important starting point. Hinrichs collects all kinds of materials and assigns them a new identity. Or in her own words: "By listening closely, I intend to set them free". Her oeuvre examines the relationship between the body and space, and how it can be depicted. The standpoint we adopt as the observer, determines what we see. When we walk around her work we see ever-changing perspectives. Something that appears fixed is constantly changing.
