About works / performance

The work of Chloë Delanghe relates to her own life understood as the ties and connections we are born into; those relations we spend all of our life re-shaping and being shaped by. Memories, much like artworks, are fickle, hard to grasp in any permanent sense. Images, much like memories, are defective, suggestions of something else. Delanghe’s video works are a mixture of her life’s story and visual, sometimes aloof storytelling. The desire to portray is joined by the desire to remember. Her work offers a detour via the lived world as we see it, leading to a more intimate understanding of an inner world.
The work also strikes that skillful chord whereby the personal is transformed into the anonymous and as such –strangely so, perhaps – opens up to the recognizable. The empathic yet analytical gaze of her camera shows an intimate world through the clever use of cinematic, narrative tools such as the close-up, framing, and the off-screen.
