Daan Gielis

BIOGRAPHY

In his oeuvre, Daan Gielis (Diest, 1988) queries the connectivity between conflicting desires and sentiments.

Happiness and sadness coinciding, frustration of desire that only triggers new desire, underground culture that stays authentic while selling out… Gielis explores the emotional, communicative and social systems that together make up the world as we know it.
