An art liaison connects art and people.
Through a personal approach, expertise, and tailor-made proposals, Benedicte Goesaert will guide you in framing a choice of art that reflects and enriches you and your personal environment.
Benedicte Goesaert is an artist liaison for collectors, curatorial projects and artist estates. During her eight years engagement as a director of Zeno X Gallery in Antwerp, Benedicte collaborated closely with international artists, galleries, leading collections and major museums.
Driven by a longstanding interest in Art History, Benedicte specialises in 20th and 21st century art with a dedicated focus on contemporary art post-1989. Having travelled extensively, she has discovered contemporary art landscapes from places as diverse as from Cape Town to Minneapolis and from Mexico City to Tokyo. While closer to home, Benedicte contributed to the international critical acclaim of Belgian painting. Establishing strong ties to the contemporary Belgian art scene, she has worked with artists such as Michaël Borremans, Dirk Braeckman, Raoul De Keyser, Mark Manders, Luc Tuymans and Anne-Mie Van Kerckhoven.
Benedicte studied Art History at the University of Ghent, where she researched and wrote her thesis on Marthe Wéry, investigating and contextualising the role of time and space in abstract and fundamental painting. This research activated a better understanding about the internal and external context of a work of art. She continues looking into the relationship of art to history and architecture, especially in the perspective of art embedded in its social environment where it is intended to meet architecture.

Happy to announce that I join the team of the Philippe Vandenberg Foundation as freelance art liaison together with Joost Declercq.
Any questions related to collecting the work by Philippe Vandenberg can be addressed to one of us.
The work of the eminent Belgian painter, draftsman and writer Philippe Vandenberg is characterised by an inner quest in which various literary, philosophical and art-historical references induce a temporary state of wonder.
Using images, words and symbols, Vandenberg challenged the ethical context of the artwork. In so doing, his paintings and drawings remain rooted in the here and now, while also establishing a visually recognisable dialogue with the society in which they were created.
Over the years, he endeavoured to transcend the tangible and to convert paint into light. In the works of Vandenberg, universal themes such as war, religion, movement, sexuality and death are crucially transformed.
