Ruben Bellinkx (1975, lives and works in Brussels) creates, in his films, drawings and scale models, conditions for strange encounters between living and inanimate elements of very different natures. He is interested in blurring boundaries and creates performances that push against the limits of the impossible. Each piece immerses the viewer in strange situations that are surprising, meaningful and often contain an existential drama. Ruben Bellinkx exposes unequal relationships and mechanisms of conditioning and domestication.

Ruben Bellinkx has taken part in numerous exhibitions such as The Raft. Art is not lonely in Ostend, Tripostal in Lille, SMAK in Ghent, Museum Beelden aan Zee in The Hague, Argos in Brussels, De Brakke Grond in Amsterdam, Be-part in Waregem, Kunstfestival Watou, Villa Romana in Florence, Het Domein in Sittard, Z33 in Hasselt, Wiels in Brussels and Marta Museum in Herford.
