With monochrome photographs suspended in time, Sybren Vanoverberghe captures the textures of the Iranian desert.
Sybren Vanoverberghe (b. 1996, Kortrijk) is an artist based in Ghent, Belgium. His work functions as an analysis of the correlation between place and time and the ever-recurring cycle of history. The artist searches for elements of myths, nature, and heritage both within ordinary sites and in places of historical importance, bringing together icons to form a new unity of the present. Vanoverberghe's work has been published in books such as 2099 (2018) and Conference Of The Birds (2019) by APE. His work was part of the .tiff selection by the FOMU Antwerp and has also been exhibited at RIOT, Stieglitz19, Unseen Amsterdam and BredaPhoto. Vanoverberghe is a co-founder of artist run-spaces Pinguin in Brussels and NO/Gallery in Ghent.
