b. 1989, lives and works in Brussels, Belgium
Diego Thielemans is engaged in a practice of moving image and collage. Gleaning materials and organizing them are at the heart of these practices. The resulting forms are diverse; printed posters, paintings, videos, small sculptures and sculptural furniture.
In addition to his personal practice, Diego Thielemans founded MULTIPLEXE with Benjamin De Backer, a curatorial project and collective sculpture in permanent evolution.
His current interests are an exhibition of Robert Rauschenberg in Rome in 1953, building renovation, the waste of time rationalized into laziness and imagiers for children.
