installation view of Aphroditae





In the installation “Aphroditae”, I explore the notions of “love” and “lust”: concepts that are very familiar to our contemporary society, yet remain elusive and conflicting. While we have been influenced by the “Eros” for as long as we have existed, our relationship to them has shifted throughout cultural and religious influence.

Dilum Coppens is a Belgian artist, investigating the creation of "meaning" through mythologyical references. His practice consits of different media, ranging from painting and drawing to video and performance. Most often, his creations come together in total-installations with painterly touches.
