BIO

(°1993, Belgium) I am an audiovisual artist and filmmaker. Since graduating with a Master's degree in Audiovisual Arts in 2018, I mainly make short experimental documentaries and video installations. For me, working with image and sound is like developing an universal language, in which I can approach social issues and challenges. 

 

I mostly work with documentary images and often start off with the observations of everyday situations and subjects. Afterwards, I work with the elements that are based on rhythm, repetition, cultural habits or routines and search through their poetics for their common and connecting characteristics. I often offer an image not far from the original state, but presented in a different tempo or format, which makes everything slide into a slightly different frame, yet it still remains recognizable. I eventually try to create an immersive space, while still offering enough room for ones own sensorial projections and thoughts.

 

After graduating in 2018 I entered a trainee program of an agency of the United Nations, where I had the opportunity to help build their renewed audiovisual identity. After this experience I decided to fully focus on the development of my own artistic practice. Since then, my work travelled through multidisciplinary platforms like art centers, film festivals and exhibitions, with documentaries, videos, multimedia installations and photography.

 

In 2020 I had the opportunity to start developing a short documentary film for the Belgian national children's television channel KETNET, as part of an initiative to involve young auteurs into the children's channel. This film will be premiering in 2022.  In 2021 I was selected as one of 10 promising artists in Belgium through the ArtContest competition, followed by a month long exhibition in Vanderborght-complex in Brussels. In 2022 I will be part of the Belgian selected artists who were granted a residency at Cité Internationales des Arts de Paris, through the National Flemish State of Art Fund.
