Heleen Seys

Heleen Seys was born in 1992 in Menen  (West-Flanders, Belgium), creating work has always been a big part of her life. She is currently living in Brussels and is now mainly focussed on photography. After a bachelor photography at LUCA School of arts, campus Sint-Lukas Brussels, with an experience abroad in Bournemouth (UK), she is now finishing her masters at LUCA as well.

For Heleen Seys, this ongoing project is a way to use her own body as a language within photography. She is maker, subject and object at the same time. She uses her body as a way to express, to communicate.
The work disrupts the fixity of image and identity and explores the possibility to transform, to create a self and to change it over and over again.
The images explore restrictions, schedules, and repetition one carefully constructs for and around a self. To use versatility as a way to build a stage for oneself and perform. To utilize resilience as a way to cope and to adjust.
By creating sculptural spaces around her own body and endlessly copying herself in various manners, Heleen Seys questions basic notions of dualities. Inner-outer, private-public, inside-outside, man-woman, me-you…
