ARTIST GUEST OF HONOUR
Marie Wynants' pictures are inspired by her early years as a professional dancer. The inherent elegance of the human body and it’s physical limitations are the central theme through her artistic output. Being the playful, voyeuristic photographer that she is, she loves to tease, imbalance and detach her subjects, and the viewer, from their natural (e)motions.
Aside from her shoots with fashion brands like Ann Demeulemeester, Delvaux, multiple awards and nominations for her work as a video director, Marie Wynants most importantly became critically acclaimed with her iconic pictures for Oscar & The Wolf' Max Colombie.

Accessible Art Fair (ACAF) is a CONTEMPORARY ART event bringing together artists and the public. Founded in 2006, The mission of the Accessible Art Fair remains unchanged: forging a bond between the artist and the buyer. This 4-day event offers a platform for artists to exhibit their work in a cultural and prestigious space. We strive to make quality artists accessible to the public and the public accessible to the artists.
“ACAF is an important window for independent artists to show the results of months of studio-work and preparation. The connections with art collectors are direct and down to earth. It's also a pleasant experience to get to know art-fellows and exchange views and sometimes project-ideas".”
Beddru - 2018 Particapting Artist
“The direct encounter with the public allowed me once again to deepen the different axes of my work and to be able to measure the impact it has on a diverse and varied public, both in terms of age, gender, and also nationalities, since Brussels is an international city. This experience has therefore been a great source of reflection and intellectual enrichment for me.”
Séve Favre - 2018 Participating Artist
“ACAF is a truly international opportunity for artists to connect and discuss our practice and philosophies”.
