Dolores Bouckaert 

Residency: Galop
14 > 28/08/2017 – Studio

‘Rien de plus étranger que notre corps, ses plaisirs et ses souffrances. Dans quel langage traduit-il ce que nous sentons de lui. Ou dans lequel traduisons-nous ce qu'il est?’ – Paul Valéry

In her physical, visual and musical performance Galop, Dolores Bouckaert relates the history of a body. One could call it a biography, a tale of the bizarre life of a body that is presented as a persona. What does it mean to have a body that is ‘different’? Who is this body, why is it taking different forms? How does it relate to the world? What does it have to say?

8 & 9/03/2018 – KAAP | De Werf (Bruges)

Dolores Bouckaert (1976, Ghent) is director, author, visual artist, actress and performer. In 2000 she graduated as visual artist and actor, and was invited as an actor by Victoria (CAMPO).
 A constant in her work is her pursuit of an attempt to intimacy. Being together, but also revolting against it. How our body gives shape to all of those feelings. She registers, shows images as if they temporarily have been charged. Her own body appears to be her main instrument and her research project. Bouckaert's projects have repeatedly been presented in Belgium and abroad.
 From 2016 to 2020 Dolores Bouckaert is artist in residence at KAAP.
