Suffering occurs in all ages. But our depictions and representations of it change.
Photographer and documentary filmmaker Lieve Blancquaert (°1963, Sint-Amandsberg) connects to the ancient tradition of depicting suffering. She was inspired by the M-Collection and places her own works between the museum pieces.
This creates an interesting interaction between her images and the centuries-old works in the museum collection.
A video about a woman who lost her child in war, a series of photos taken in a hospital emergency room, a triptych of a family in a refugee camp or images that focus on poverty, each engage in dialogue with pietas and depositions from the cross.
