The moving body vs. the built world: discover artist Bie Michels’ process through text and a performance in collaboration with Madagascan performer Liantsoa Rakotonaivo.
For three years, Bie Michels has been working with local craftsmen, artists and organisations in Madagascar, exploring the links between earth and humans, object and body, handicraft and tradition. A publication about the working process of this project, entitled Piles of Bricks/Piles des briques, will be presented alongside a newly developed and ongoing performative project with performer Liantsoa Rakotonaivo.
Bie Michels (1960, Kimwenza, Congo), lives and works in Antwerp. Through her work, Michels observes, documents and questions the representation of the ‘other’.
