Both halves of the Belgian artist duo, Sofie Lachaert and Luc d’Hanis, graduated at the KASK (Royal Academy of Fine Arts) + HISK (Higher Institute for Fine Arts) Antwerp. Their long-standing symbiotic relationship seamlessly interweaves conceptual applied and visual arts, philosophy and craftsmanship. They make artwork that exists exist outside the conventional, for their works they create an ultimate context for them to inhabit. Their pieces have hidden layers of meaning and interpretation in objects resonated with the surreal undertones of the scenography. Like in a film set, multiple carefully crafted realities persuaded the audience to take a step inside, to look closer. Informed by their distinctive point of view, atelier lachaert dhanis’ scenographic designs celebrate craftsmanship, while remaining focused on reinterpreting existing ideas and preconceptions.
The duo also creates also scenographies and contextual environments for galleries, museums, art fairs…around the world.
