Collaborating since 2004, Belgian artists Sarah & Charles draw inspiration from the world of entertainment and more specifically, its invisible structures. Subjects and genres such as make-believe, simulacrum, the story within the story, cinematic experience, the suspension of disbelief and music are playfully and thoughtfully reviewed in their research and practice. They produce architectural interventions and stage designs combining video, photography, sculpture and installation techniques that communicate both artists’ interests.
Sarah & Charles studied at the Higher Institute for Fine Art in Ghent (B). They have exhibited at Wiels, Brussels; Z33, Hasselt (B) (solo); Broelmuseum, Kortrijk (B) (solo); Netwerk, Aalst (B); Stedelijk Museum, ‘s-Hertogenbosch (NL); De Hermitage, Amsterdam; Marta Hertford, Hertford (D), Nest, The Hague and Broadcast Gallery, Dublin; amongst others. Sarah & Charles (Brussels, 1981 and 1979) live and work in Brussels.
