Through Your Eyes

‘Through Your Eyes’ is a reflection on how we experience ourselves through a gaze and the presence of others. In the artwork ‘Through your eyes’ (2021), Gistelinck challenges conventional ideas of beauty and representation of the sexes with computer-manipulated images. Using significantly enlarged pixels in this particular artwork, she emphasizes the similarities between digital imaging techniques and the tapestry's woven grid structure.

‘Through Your Eyes’ is the first work of a series of works that will evolve through time. The three figures present in the tapestrie will be in constant change, without a fixed end result.
