LATE SPRING is available and will be presented at BredaPhoto.

Still lifes, scenes and landscapes of a kind of primeval place in Finland. During several stays at the Art Residency Mustarinda between 2010 and 2013, Debby Huysmans found herself surrounded by and brought into contact with the old-growth forests. Late Spring shows how the Belgian photographer uses the stories of different people to explore this magical place, this northern nature and its meanings. Each person with his own strategy, his own dream, philosophy or opinion, but all of them involved and engaged with these mystical surroundings. Walking, beholding, observing, telling and collecting, are just some of the methods used to clarify the mystery of this ancient woodland and the fables related to them. The result is a complex, yet poetical narrative about an ambiguous environment where nature, research and the spirits meet.

The Moscow News about 'Free Spaces'

One of the most noteworthy special projects is “Free Spaces” to be held at
Art Ru. Curated by Belgium’s Maaike Leyn, it features works by Annouk Thys,
Maaike Leyn and Debby Huysmans and Russia’s Dmitry Kavarga and Vika
The project’s concept is based on the idea that the availability of huge
free spaces in Russia contributes to a feeling of freedom, as opposed to
Western Europe, where spaces are strictly controlled and regulated.
