Charline Tyberghein's work is an interesting combination of confusing signals. It reflects a slightly detached contemporary post-Internet aesthetics, but at a closer look, the thin layer of her paintings seems to point somewhere to the patterns of art-deco ornaments. Flattened shapes of objects get the meaning of symbols, but they are hermetically impenetrable, they seem to tell a story, sometimes with picaresque humour, and sometimes they take us into a game whose rules remain incomprehensible. / rv
