Sanne De Wolf
There is always a playful tension in the work of Sanne De Wolf. The Belgian artist is quite outspoken when it comes to certain evolutions in today’s society. Whether that involves feminism, religion, migration or other contemporary issues. Sanne consistently incorporates her personal opinions and feelings in her artistic work. Take Salon des réfugiés (2016), were she worked with female refugees who after dialogue with Sanne stitched and handworked their way straight into to M HKA Antwerp or this year’s Sentinel project, bringing the artist to Iran’s capital Tehran. Were, Sanne would build up the moment selling her scarves at busy crossroads for fifteen minutes at a time. A poetic guerrilla sale that brought about fantastic reactions of clients that immediately fell in love with her art: a product for daily use, but a conversation starter none the less.
