Benoit Platéus

Benoit Platéus (born in 1972, Chênée, lives and works in Brussels), winner of the ‘Young Belgian Painting' in 2003, is one of the most important Belgian artists of his generation. His work doesn't neglect any medium – photography, video, drawing or sculpture – in order to search for ambiguities in the most mundane field of visibility. Restless observer, precise, discrete and malicious, Benoit Platéus introduces a distance between objects and their perception in order to shift them to the other side, in a space with variable dimensions and multiple interpretations.
