    Joëlle Tuerlinckx was born in 1958 in Brussels, Belgium. She lives and works in Brussels.

    For years she develops a unique geometric visual language that reveals the building blocks of abstraction - cubes, circles, volumes, lines, and folds - in the fragmentary salvage she finds in daily life. These pose alongside her own work – drawings, objects, films – as archival materials, which become activated in Joëlle Tuerlinckx’s situation-specific presentations, rich with sociopolitical intertextuality. She thus questions the usual culturally established modes of exposition, such as glass cases, gallery walls, and billboards.

    Joëlle Tuerlinckx mounts an advertising column titled Din Morris, transferring an emblematic object of the cityscape to the exhibition space of the Petit Palais. DIN refers to the standard formats of advertisements, hinting at how her archival materials seem to pose instead of acting as forms of promotion.
