From 14 May to 31 October, the Belgian artist Anne Daems (°1966) will be exhibiting her drawings, photographs, videos and installations at BOZAR in an exhibition entitled Tuinkamer (Garden Room).

The exhibition presents the full range of her artistic practice, in which the details of everyday life are dissected and brought to the fore, highlighting the fragility but also the beauty of this simple reality.

Anne Daems won the Prijs Jonge Belgische Schilderkunst (the precursor of the Belgian Art Prize) in 1999 and lives and works in Brussels.
