Walter Segers emigrated from Belgium in 1993 and currently lives and works in Toronto. He graduated from the Ontario College of Art and Design University in 2008 with distinction and received OCADU’s prestigious M.C. McCain Post Graduate Photography Residency in 2009 and he was an artist in residence at the Museum Of Contemporary Art Toronto (MOCA) through Akin studio programming in 2019. Segers has exhibited his photo-based works at Spin, Gallery Thirteen Thirteen, Lonsdale, The John B. Aird Gallery, Propeller, The Window Gallery YYZ, P|M Gallery, Museum of Contemporary Art and the Gladstone art hotel in Toronto. In Ontario he exhibited at Open Studio at Cambrian College in Sudbury, FHM in Cambridge, Markham Museum and Lilliput Gallery in London, ON. His work has been shown internationally at Leslie Lohman Annex Gallery in NYC, Canadian Cultural Centre in Paris, Peter Deckers in Belgium, Galerie AMU in Prague and Galerie 12 in Zlín in the Czech Republic. Segers’ work is published in ArtWindsor, muse magazine (Canadian Museums Association) as well as the online magazines Wondereur, Frank by The Genteel, and Pixie & Rotter. His photo-based works explore issues surrounding gender, sexuality, immigration, belonging and identity.
It is 2021 and two decades have passed since the new Millennium and the horrific happenings of 9/11. The world is different from what we once knew. Segers is in possession of more than enough photographs to print, repeat, and build new imagery. The accumulation of images in this media-obsessed culture gives him the opportunity to collage found images with his own photographs, thus creating new characters, archiving actualities, and constructing surreal pictures.
