Lives and works in Kontich | Antwerp

Roeland Tweelinckx is a Belgian artist who mainly creates site-specific interventions in autonomous gallery spaces or public places. In his interventions – in which he utilises everyday materials – he subtly plays with both the surroundings and our powers of perception. Content-wise, his work draws on trompe l’oeil references, creating a slight sense of confusion in the audience, while at the same time inviting a more concentrated look at reality.
