The interaction between the virtual world and the real world plays an important role in the work of Belgian photographer Charlotte Lybeer. Inspired by films and games, the characters that Lybeer portrays seem to shift to an in-between world, a world in which they take on a different identity and temporarily escape everyday reality.

The exhibition ‘The Furry Adventures of the Cabbit and the Folf' at the Kunsthal Rotterdam shows over forty of Lybeer's works, in which she follows people - ‘furry fans' and ‘zentai members' - who meet at pre-arranged places and immerse themselves in a different ‘skin'. Her intriguing photographic series illustrates the way in which people respond to an expanding geographicaland imaginary world.

Lybeer purposely photographs these people not in their normal surroundings - usually an imaginary setting - but out of context, in their own homes, so that their virtual and their everyday identities are united in a single image.
