"So many months isolated…Those moments of loneliness had an impact on all of our lives during this pandemic. Those changes are deep… «Chambre avec vue» put forward the effects that those changes had on us and make us question the notion of «home». Crises strengthen our attachments to places we’re directly or indirectly link to, but which don’t belong to us anymore. We often get the opportunity to live and project ourselves in a never-ending present, a blur skyline that brings us to a kind of resignation… In a contemporary context defined by an endless crisis, «Chambre avec vue» witnesses an escape projected on the physical world that surrounds us.

" Born in 1990 in Metz, Lives and works in Brussels, Belgium — His protean work represents melancholic and romantic frescoes of environments with a blur temporality. Thomas Clemente questions our relationship to reality and play with our perceptions by mixing virtuality, wonderful and realism, he offers a fantasised rewriting of the lived.
Recalling us what is familiar, his artworks take away both our looks and spirits to a fracture point of the reality. Halos of a fantastic strangeness, they adorn the mundane of poetry and seams to want to restore the memories of past things.
Paintings, sculptures and more question the beliefs and the representations which shaped human history to better ask us how present we are to the actual world."
