Charlotte Koenen won the O-68 Award 2022
Charlotte Koenen (1992) lives and works in Maastricht. She grew up in Belgium and France. In 2014 she graduated from the Art Academy in Maastricht, in 2015/2016 she was a participant at the Jan van Eyck Academy in Maastricht.

With an installation in the gallery she presents the result of a research into documenting foam masses. These works function as an imprint of a temporary ‘landscape’ – the cross-sections of the ephemeral body of now dried foam. The workshop from which this research was conducted is central. Elements of the working method such as self-designed tools, storage methods and photographic images all become part of the work, as separate artefacts, but also as references to the process. The wooden structure functions here not only as a support for the paper prints, but also as a pavilion in which the idea of ​​”border” between inside and outside is questioned.
