Willem Oorebeek

Born in 1953 in Pernis, Netherlands.

The work of Willem Oorebeek is formulated around the appropriation of images, advertisements, or covers that he transforms using printing and blackening of an over-abundance of with images, when everything is about show, Oorebeek’s procedures challenge representation in these media the criteria for featuring in these media, and the influence this content has on perception.For several decades now, Willem Oorebeek has also played an essential role as mentor for around 200 young artists mainly based in Brussels.It was only natural therefore that the team of the Le Salon - a meeting place for the Brussels art scene - turned to him to produce an installation to mark the launch of the book The Anthology of Le Salon 2011-2016.
