Rinus Van de Velde (°1983, Leuven, lives and works in Antwerp) presents his first large-scale film project after two years of preparation. The 40-minute movie, entitled The Villagers, premieres during Van de Velde’s fifth solo exhibition at Tim Van Laere Gallery. Alongside the movie, a number of new charcoal drawings are on display, along with color drawings and three sets from the movie. As a whole, it is a comprehensive installation allowing the viewer to enter the universe of the artist.

In recent years, Van de Velde has increasingly evolved into a “total artist”. He constantly creates a tension between fiction and reality through the use of different media such as drawings, sculptures, installations and now film as well.
