An Onghena

In an attempt to better understand the world and the unknown, An Onghena explores the boundaries between art and science. With a subtle sense of humor and flirting with the fictitious, she integrates her experience in the applied arts into an autonomous artistic practice. In line with this she focuses in some works on the status of the artist book and analogue technologies, as seen against the backdrop of increasing digitization.

An Onghena (1992, Belgium) received her MA Graphic Design and thereafter her MA of Research into Art & Design at Sint Lucas Antwerp. She was artist-in-residence at the Jan Van Eyck Academy, Maastricht and laureate of Toegepast20 in Z33. Recently her work was seen in “Remodeling Graphic Habits, nr 86”, The Art Center, Sarasota, Florida; “Figures and Routines”, Sea Foundation, Tilburg; “Performance for the book”, Kunstraum Lakeside, Klagenfurt. In 2019, she will have a solo exhibition at Goldberg Galerie, München and “Performance for the book” will be conducted at the Vienna Art Book Fair.
