Antwerp-based Heck (b. 1979, Düsseldorf) is known for her lucid yet enigmatic paintings, in which realism is transformed from a representational category into a fluid process. Her compositions branch into multiple genres – with literature, art history, folklore and lived experience forming simultaneous and indivisible strands. Her practice also incorporates sculpture, film, performance and photography.
