The work of Benoit Platéus (b. 1972 Liege, Belgium), winner of the ‘Young Belgian Painting’ award in 2003, doesn’t neglect any medium — photography, video, drawing or sculpture — in order to search for ambiguities in the most mundane field of visibility.

Restless observer, precise, discrete and malicious, Benoit Platéus introduces a distance between objects and their perception in order to shift them to the other side, in a space with variable dimensions and multiple interpretations.
