Themes in her work are time and history and how people deal with it. Through de- and reconstructing fragments of personal and familial histories, she visualises events hidden in our collective memory. In her installations, performances and photographic work real objects or persons Clinckx shows beyond all recognition with respect to people's choices in history. Clinckx confronts us with our process of memory and challenges our comfort zone.
