Mieke Lamiroy

(BE), 2021 Artwork specially created for this exhibition

Magritte meets Broodthaers: equal doses of surrealism and poetry, mixed with a shot of dada. Surrealism is never far away in my work, which draws from sources like vintage b&w magazines and old maps.

In this work, a strong Brussels symbol is the ‘heart-shaped’ city centre, reduced to an almost abstract shape.

My work consists of analogue collages, sometimes combined with printing techniques or acrylic paint. I like to play with geometry, colours, associations and unexpected angles.

For Museum Dr. Guislain I recently participated in ‘Kunst in Afzondering’ and ‘Generaties Lijmen’. Furthermore, I work as a passionate guide for Artforum, Museum M and Fomu, and as an art teacher at Slac, the Leuven Academy.
