Emmanuel Van der Auwera (b. 1982, Belgium) lives and works in Brussels, Belgium. Through filmmaking, video sculpture, theatre, printmaking, and other media, Van der Auwera sets up encounters with found images that provoke a questioning of our visual literacy: How do images of contemporary mass media operate on various publics and to what end? With the formal rigor of a logician, the artist dissects how images are engineered, mastering specialized industry techniques and intervening on their protocol. In so doing, Van der Auwera brings us no closer to a monolithic truth, but constructs new paradigms for reading images and understanding our relationships with them. Van der Auwera is a 2015 Laureate of the Higher Institute for Fine Arts (HISK) post-academic course in Ghent, a 2015 Langui Award recipient of the Young Belgian Art Prize, and the first winner of the Goldwasserschenking awarded by WIELS and the Belgian Royal Museums of Fine Art. His work has recently been featured in exhibitions at WIELS (Brussels, BE), Centre Pompidou (Paris, FR), Palais de Tokyo (Paris, FR), Centro per l'Arte Contemporanea Luigi Pecci (Prato, IT), Ars Electronica (Linz, AT), Casino Luxembourg - Forum d'art Contemporain (Luxembourg City, LU), Mu.ZEE (Ostend, BE), Botanique (Brussels, BE), among others. His work has been acquired by the Dallas Museum of Art (Dallas, TX, US), KANAL - Centre Pompidou (Brussels, BE), Mu.ZEE (Ostend, BE), Fundación Otazu (Pamplona, ES), Collection de la Province de Hainaut - BPS22 (Charleroi, BE), the National Bank of Belgium - IACCCA (Brussels, BE), and the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art (Eugene, OR, US).
