Leo Gabin

The three artists behind the Belgian-based collective Leo Gabin —Lieven Deconinck, Gaëtan Begerem, and Robin De Vooght—have been working together since the early 2000’s and regularly experiment with a variety of media to explore the transience and capriciousness that underpins youth culture. Posts culled from websites, images shared in online forums, and video clips disseminated through social media often serve as the foundation for their video mash-ups, collages, and silkscreens. Transformed, clipped, and reconstructed, the resulting images confront the classical notion of artistic ideation and the inherent ephemerality and mercurial nature of contemporary online media. Leo Gabin has had solo exhibitions at Elizabeth Dee Gallery (New York), The Cultural Centre (Belgium), Peres Projects (Berlin), and the Kunstraum Mueenchen (Munich). Group shows include those at Spovieri Gallery (London), Museo Di Capodimonte (Naples, IT), and White Cube (London).
