In her projects, An works with information and data that she collects from books and online sources. In a twist of fiction and humor, she loves to explore the boundaries between science and art, fascinated by the systems behind and in an attempt to understand the world and the unknown. In another part of her practice she questions the role of the (artist)book and the use of analogue  techniques in this digital age.

An Onghena was an Artist in Residence at the Jan Van Eyck Academie, a multiform institute for art, design and reflection. She graduated in 2014 as MA graphic design at St Lucas School of Arts in Antwerp. In 2016 she continued her research based practise at the postgraduate course Master of Research in Art & Design and she was awarded as laureate of Toegepast20 in z33.
