Ghent: Karin Borghouts
Karin Borghouts got a commission to photograph the building and the interiors of Vooruit Kunstencentrum in Ghent Belgium on the occasion of their 100th anniversary. A selection of these photographs can be seen in the exhibition Vooruit 100 at STAM the City Museum or in the dance hall at Vooruit and also in the book Vooruit 100 by Dr. Liesbeth Nys (ed. Hannibal).
Karin Borghouts studied painting and sculpture and has worked as a graphic designer. She started photographing in 1999.
She photographs places, preferably architectural environments and interiors. Her work occupies a position between photo-graphy and visual art, and is rich in references to painting. Her highly ingenious photos can be found, for example, in the collections of the Fotomuseum and the MAS in Antwerp Belgium. Her work has been exhibited in major European and Japanese cities. Various publications of and about her work are available. Karin Borghouts is working on her own projects (art and documentary photography). She likes to work in site-specific projects and has a large experience in printing and publishing. She also works on commissioned assignments for cultural institutes, museums, publishers, architects, city councils and artists.
