Lieven Segers 1975, lives and works in Antwerp. Visual artist Lieven Segers collects small moments, stories, of his own close surrounding that are far from having a documentary style. They are framed, transformed with a humorous, sarcastic or critical view towards art, and daily situations, with an attitude that could resemble that of an old court joker. The issues that are pointed at and the way to do it are very close to the ordinary, making the distance between the viewer and the thoughts smaller.

Lieven Segers is represented by  Base-Alpha Gallery founded by Bart Vanderbiesen, well known on the local circuit for his involvement with Antwerp Art, Base-Alpha Gallery opened in 2007 with the aim of showing and promoting contemporary art by young Belgian and international artists who have a clear link with the Belgian art scene.With somewhat of a risk-taking approach to curating, the gallery distinguishes itself through its hardnosed commitment to Belgian artists such as Lieven Segers, Michèle Matyn and Nadia Naveau, as well as its artist-curated series of shows. Located on the outskirts of Antwerp's art gallery district, a short walk from the Central Station, the gallery has carved out a name for itself as a space for forward-thinking, subversive art whose quality and pertinence is never put into question.
