Dries Segers (°1990, Belgium)
is a photographer, fabulator, storyteller, and plant bender. He works with various media and print techniques. His work is centered on photographic fabulation with a main focus on the non-human, Invisibles, and ecological meltdown. Segers works with the history of photography by activating the use of specific techniques and attitudes. This results in plant-based prints, camera-less photographs, and extreme close-up photography. His latest project Hotel Bellevue focuses on border trees and a Celtic use of a landscape.
The work of Dries Segers has been shown in many solo and group shows, including Vitrine Gallery (Basel, Switzerland), A Tale of A Tub (Rotterdam, Netherlands), The Weekend Room (Seoul, South Korea), De Brakke Grond (Amsterdam, Netherlands), Musee and Galerie Botanique (Brussels), Neue Galerie (Ausberg, Germany), Warte für Kunst (Kassel, Germany), 019 (Ghent), Art On Paper (Bozar, Brussels), Tique art space (Antwerp), De Warande (Turnhout) and Fotomuseum (Antwerp).
