Through her work Leen Van Dommelen dissects the body in a fragile game balancing between cruelty and poetry, control and the loss of it.
Creating space for what is suppressed and hidden within all of us. Expressed in grotesk imaginary and gesture, transforming the uncomfortable and the impossible. Always with a nod to childhood but with the seriousness of how a child plays.
Her work, made of performances and installations, seeks a vulnerable confrontation between the gaze of the spectator and the self-conscious introspective eye.
