Through constellations, Leen tries to communicate how she sees the world. A constellation can be an anecdote, a gathering of objects, collages,… In this case, she sauntered through the boxes of images in her atelier until the picture of the hand alone found her. This reflex she had seems pretty clear. The image questions itself, and this is the case in her whole being as an artist; constantly questioning herself in manners that are in more ways related to Alzheimer than to critical thinking.

Leen Hoogmartens is a 24 years old artist, living in Limburg for now, at her parents’ house. She graduated in photography and illustration/image thinking. Besides these diplomas she started working as a florist in 2021, which was always a part of her atelier, pressing and drying flowers to make new constellations out of them.
Leen’s work can’t be divided into categories or themes because she tackles life as it is presented to her, not only is living her main inspiration, it is the richest theme to focus on. In the atelier, Leen writes, makes constellations, hangs or lays pictures, makes videos, takes pictures, and prints them out again to start all over. She loves to make books that reflect the process of the atelier rather than show some kind of result. There is no such thing as a result, there’s only the process (over and over again). Leen accepts limited assignments, for instance, Patches, a Ghent-based artist she has been working with for 2 years now. They build a complete visual strategy around the songs or ep together. she doesn’t like to work for a lot of people at the same time because she doesn’t have enough energy to do that. She’d rather focus on a limited amount of projects and really go for it.
