part of Night Shift at Decoratelier – 02-04-2022
Stef Van Looveren’s practice translates itself into video installation, photo, sculpture and performance. Van Looveren uses the installations as an attempt to reflect and dismantle the performativity of our human behaviour, primarily within the notion of gender. Playfully mimicking our social conducts along with visual culture, their work moves towards a surreal gesture.
For this Brussels edition of Night Shift, Stef Van Looveren creates a video performance. In the video, different people make their way through space. Relating to each other and the environment, they bring about a queer ecology.
