Bert Jacobs (b. 1987, Turnhout, Belgium) is a Brussels-based artist who blurs the line between life and art. His diverse body of work encompasses installation art, sculptures, drawings, prints, multiples, and editions. Jacobs explores a wide range of contemporary themes, including the intricacies of memory and intuition, imagination, the act of collecting, scenography, and drawing. His installations and exhibitions frequently serve as platforms for collaborative performances, uniting visual art, music, and performance into a immersive experience.
Jacobs' artistic influence extends into his daily life, where playful interventions manifest as art, such as a DIY sauna in his attic and windows adorned with colorful geometric foil. His experiences as a theater cook and amateur gardener also find their way into his work, which often examines the relationship between humans and the surrounding environment, particularly nature.
Bert Jacobs has collaborated with fellow artists and exhibited his work at several venues across Europe, including Cinema Art House Domnakinoto Sofia, Hypercorps Brussels, KunstWerke Berlin, and Noplace Oslo, among others.
