About Artist

Carine Van Gerven

Carine studied art and painting at PHIKO art college in Hasselt (now PXL-MAD). After her graduation she became an Art teacher in a secondary art school (Mater Dei in Overpelt). As an artist she organised several projects and participated in a lot of exhibitions as the international photo festival l’Été des Portraits in Bourbon-Lancy (France), projects with the culture centre Palethe in Pelt: Een vrouw in het Hobos, Face2Face, K-linken, Klanken and kleuren,... More and more photography became her language. From 2016-2018 she was Deputy Mayor of Culture and founded the international photo festival ‘Lens op de Mens’ in Overpelt. After three editions she’s still the coordinator and inspirator of this festival. Connecting people through art and creative projects is one of her goals. Carine evolved from ceremonial photography to orchestrated photography. As a photographer she uses her own photographic language by telling today’s stories in historical looking settings. It has become her way of communicating. Each composition holds an intimate and timeless history. In recent years, she gained international fame with these Tableaux Vivants. Carine Van Gerven shows not only man as an individual, but also businesses, occasions, groups, ideas or relevant social themes. She uncovers subtitle links with a lot of empathy and symbolism and uncovers a story behind each composition. Some of her images have been exhibited in Galerie Paul Janssen in Saint-Tropez, France and in Belgrade during the Vizualizator festival. In 2022, she achieved the highly coveted title of QEP - Qualified European Photographer with the FEP - Federation of European Professional Photographers. In 2023, she was selected by Team Belgium for the 5th time for the WPC - the World Photographic Cup. As a guest photographer for Lens op de Mens 2023, she shows a selection from her rich oeuvre of Tableaux Vivants. www.carinevangerven.be
