Dries Segers

Dries Segers is a belgian artist-photographer who lives and works in Antwerp. In may 2015 he published his first artistbook ‘Seeing a rainbow (through a window that isn’t there)‘. This object was created after a residency program of one year in De Warande (Turnhout). The book revolves around the metaphor of a rainbow which he pinpoints  as standard beauty. His approach concentrates on wonderment on the spectre of colors that is present even in something dull. An unconscious image created when the situation presents itself. Segers mostly works with the city as decor and tries to find a lyric gaze on the grayness. His work got published in different magazines and exhibited across the globe including BOZAR (Brussels), Brakke Grond (Amsterdam), Neue Galerie (Augsburg), Listahaskoli (Reykjavik), Tique (Antwerp), FOMU (Antwerp), Warte für Kunst (Kassel),… From 20.11.2015 until 10.01.2016 he got selected for the groupshow ‘The gods must be crazy – part photography’ at De Directeurswoning (Roeselare) curated by stilll gallery.
