Esther Verhaeghe – Art Concepts

Because it provides a response to our anxieties, the resilience envisaged by means of art is something that is very close to the heart of the gallerist, who has always had a predilection for artists and works that display a high degree of sensitivity. This penchant is part of the identity of her gallery, whose exhibitions specifically centre on creators who explore emotion, the psyche, the unconscious… and artists who are ‘beyond categories’, in some cases outsiders or marginal, fringe figures.

Her aim is to show that “art, in awakening us to otherness, can comfort us in our paradoxes of being alive, suffering and happy, all in one”. By presenting some of the multiple approaches adopted by artists of resilience, her idea is to build bridges between creators, spectators and social scientists, and to forge links between beings and all things towards universal love.
