Vincent
Meessen
About

Vincent Meessen (VS, 1971) is a Brussels-based artist and filmmaker. His artistic work is woven from a constellation of actors, gestures, and signs that maintain a polemical and sensible relation to the writing of history and the westernization of imaginaries. He decenters and multiplies gazes and perspectives to explore the variety of ways in which colonial modernity has impacted the fabric of contemporary subjectivities. Both in his work as an artist and in his paracuratorial activities, he likes to use procedures of collaboration that undermine the authority of the author and emphasize the intelligence of collectives.


His work has been shown in numerous solo exhibitions, at Mu.ZEE, Ostend (2020), The Power Plant, Toronto (2019), Ellen Art Gallery, Montreal (2018), Centre Pompidou, Paris (2018) and Bozar, Brussels (2017), Wiels, Brussels (2016), Kunsthalle Basel (2015). Recent group presentations include, Chicago Architecture Biennale, Lubumbashi Biennale, International Film Festival Rotterdam, FID Marseille, Shanghai Biennale, Taipei Biennale. With ten guest artists, Vincent Meessen represented Belgium at the 56th Venice Biennale in 2015. He is a founding member of Jubilee-platform for artistic research and production.
