Joëlle Tuerlinckx is known for her subtle interventions, in which she uses materials to manipulate our perceptions and call viewers’ attention to the arbitrary or random, to what is generally accepted, what is happening in the margins or what is disguised or hidden. For her exhibitions, she works on location, on almost immaterial installations in which she uses minimal means (for example, light, colour and wood) and basic actions, creating patterns that take on a dialogue with the architectural space. She concentrates entirely on the process of creation, with every action leaving a trace that responds to the whole.
