Prohibés 3

About this work

The “Prohibited “series are part of the “Berkendael series”. These series were made after weekly meetings with women at Berkendael prison, one of the few prisons exclusively for woman, situated in Brussels, Belgium. Through three years of running a painting workshop there, Celine Cuvelier had the opportunity to collect many unusual testimonies and stories. These series depict the objects confiscated from prisoners. Everyday, often harmless objects, that once prohibited, take on a new symbolic dimension for these women.

Céline Cuvelier

Céline Cuvelier (°1988, Brussels, BE) is a multi-faceted artist, whose work touches on painting, sculpture, installation and photography. Through her artistic research, she was naturally drawn to working with inmates in prisons, and refugees in migrant camps grappling with the realities of those who experience the limits of our societies. She holds a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the Université Libre de Bruxelles (Brussels, BE), and began studying art in 2011, enrolling in the painting section of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Brussels, where she finished her studies in 2016. After graduating, she obtained a residency at the “Moonens Foundation(a Belgian foundation constituted to help young talented artists to develop their artistic career named after the Belgian painter Laurent Moonens). One of her paintings was sold at a charity auction held in September 2017, organized by the renowned museum Dhondt-Dhaenens (Deurle, BE) in cooperation with its partner Christie’s. Céline Cuvelier participated in a number of collective exhibitions in Belgium such as la Radieuse, curated by Emmanuel Lambion and Frédéric de Goldschmidt (2016), Masters Salon 2016 at the Vanderborght Buildings (BE), The Bloom Experiment (2016) at the Bloom Hotel (BE), Masters Salon 2016 at the Royal Academy of Antwerp (BE), the Other Stoic Comedian (2016) at SUMMER 78 (BE) and Island Present (2016) at La Vallée (BE).
