Lachaert and d’Hanis make buoyant the banal
Entering the world of Sofie Lachaert and Luc d’Hanis by way of their current exhibition in Belgium is entirely appropriate, as it perfectly conveys the very essence of their oeuvre. The duo met while studying in Antwerp and instantaneously related to one another. The bond that formed seems to directly eke into their work and make it extra powerful. Solid, sincere, and unpretentious, the inherent message in the installations/objects/performances they produce cannot fail to strike a chord in the viewer.
