Mirre Nimmegeers was born in 1995, and Eri Vanluchene in 1997° in Belgium and are an artistic duo living and working in Ghent, Belgium. They both graduated in photography and successfully finished their master’s programme in photography at Sint-Lukas, Brussels.
From a shared working process and aesthetics, they started collaborating as a duo in 2017. Their interest goes towards the narrating qualities of the photographic series and the ambiguous questions photography raises about the relation between fiction and non-fiction.
About ‘The King is my Neighbour’ – words by Mirre Nimmegeers and Eri Vanluchene:
In “The King is my Neighbour”, Eri Vanluchene & Mirre Nimmegeers build a visual labyrinth for the viewer to get lost within. Through suggestive pairings and associative imagery, they construct a closed-off world full of references and symbols. This series shows a documentation of their search into the concept of power – but their answers remain inadequate – rather they show the conflictual and psychological relation one can experience in trying to reach the concept.
