‘Letting go of all that you already know. Looking differently without knowing where it ends’ '

This series is different. A logical continuation for me. A search for more complex images with more layers. A traditional first impression. Monochrome colours, a strong presence of colouring. Light that makes the images vibrate. Until you take a closer look. I love showing that things are not unambiguous. Images show nuances, can be radical sometimes, take hold of you and suck you in. Finally lost! Letting go of all that you already know. Looking differently without knowing where it ends.' Koen Broos  

Koen Broos (1972) is De Spil's in-house photographer this season. He exhibits his series 'finally lost / series 7' in Ter Posterie in Roeselare. A selection of photographs he made during his many quests in Belgium and abroad. The real topic is light. The darker the pictures, the clearer this becomes. Koen Broos does not show what you are used to see, but he tries to find the tension. His camera forces him to look at reality differently. As the viewer, the artist searches for something to hold on to.  

Ter Posterie becomes a space where you can weigh up the inner world of Koen Broos with your own thoughts and emotions. An expo as a journey in the subconscious. Images are posted on a large billboard outside De Spil during the entire season. Koen Broos has specifically made these images for - and in - De Spil. A new picture will appear every month.
