Her practice uses different media such as installation, performance, sculpture and video to evoke states of ambivalence - action and passivity, pause and movement, work and rest - and question the dominant standards of productivity and work.
Laurie Charles (BE) is a Belgian video artist who interweaves folklore, history and fiction in her work. She is a guest professor for the editorial practice course at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts of Belgium.

He links these elements in his research on urban spaces, “other” practices of knowledge production and technology. He is also curator and co-director of c-o-m-p-o-s-i-t-e, Brussels, and visiting professor at the Printing Department of ENSAV La Cambre, Brussels.
