Born in Ukkel (BE).
Jacqueline Mesmaeker (born 1929 in Brussels) was fashion designer from 1962 to 1972. After that, she continued her career as an artist. She creates installations, videos, draws, photographs, writes and designs.
"I see my work," said Mesmaeker once, "as attention directed to everyday things or literature, as emphasizing things that could be forgotten and as thanks for the fact that we are able to see and notice things.”
