CHLOE DELANGHE (b.1991, Ostend) is a visual artist living and working in Brussels. Delanghe’s practice is focused on photography and moving image. Her work invites us to contemplate the mechanisms of the camera and the roles they play in (re)constructing and fictionalising memory and family. Blurring contemporary and archaic photographic genres, her work often examines the act of looking itself.
Delanghe is currently developing a mid-length film, Hexham Heads in collaboration with Mattijs Driesen, which received support from ARGOS through the ARGOS 2020 open call and from Kunstendecreet. Delanghe is also developing a new photobook which has been supported by VOCATIO. She was awarded a VOCATIO award for Fine Arts in 2021.
Her first book, titled Reasons to Be Cheerful, was published in 2016 by WIELS and Motto Books.
Her work has been exhibited internationally at Harlan Levey Projects in Brussels, De Brakke Grond in Amsterdam, WIELS in Brussels, TOKAS Hongo in Tokyo, SIZE Matters in Vienna, Extracity Kunsthal in Antwerp, S.M.A.K. in Ghent, ING Art Centre in Brussels, Beursschouwburg in Brussels, and screened at film festivals / art centres such as EMAF in Osnabrück, Art Cinema OFFoff in Ghent, AT HOME WITH in Espoo, CINEMATEK in Brussels, Visions du Réel in Nyon, Courtisane in Ghent.
Delanghe has taken part in various residency programmes such as WIELS, Brussels (2015); FLACC, Genk (2017); STRT KIT AAIR, Antwerp (2018); Tokyo Arts and Space, Tokyo (2019); Cité Internationale des Arts, Paris (2022).
