The exhibition highlights how Vanderperre’s fascination with youth has been a motivational force for almost three decades. In dialogue with his photographs he selected several artworks that have been an important source of inspiration in the ongoing development of his universe. The overview of his photographic practice explores the evolution of its visual language, as well as the years of collaboration with Olivier Rizzo and Raf Simons.
