"Belgium, a cramped country born in 1830, is now at a turning point. A tipping point or a critical threshold? Having now moved past separatist ideologies and industrial restructuring plans, what does this society said to be used to compromise look like?
A far cry from the fictional self-mocking Belgium, Cédric Gerbehaye presents a homeland of people and strategies focused on survival. He offers an interlude of images and interpretations that unveil his real Belgium."
The title D'entre eux can be translated as From the middle, or From within, the artist photographing Begium and its people as one of them, returning to his home country and looking at it after working in conflict areas for several years, in many different countries.
Texts by Benno Barnard, Caroline Lamarche and Olivier Moutonin French and Dutch.
