Dries Segers’ process-based practice mainly focuses on the idea of an uncontrollable image, self-generating images. He is exploring the borders between abstract and figurative photography. Seeing becomes at issue.
As with “undecided photographs’, negative analogue film techniques allow an image from the back of the camera, optics disengages and create an accidental photograph using only light, space and time. The process determines the result('black body', 'hits of sunshine'). Segers always endeavour to enter into collaborations with the unforeseen.
Colour produced by science ('kelvin', 'undecided photographs') or images generated by sound, movement and memory (a vale of desolation), colour-spectrum at the blink of your eye (seeing a rainbow). His praxis examines the slowness of the photographic image that often leaves reality to seek out for its own abstraction and elegance.
The wonderment and fascination arises again with the creation of something where the artist has releases his supervision and becomes a spectator himself.
