Evelien Cammaert is performance –and visual artist. She obtained degrees in Photography (BA Narafi Brussels 2010) and Performance Studies (BA, Academy of performing Arts, Maastricht 2016). With a background in both disciplines, she creates hybrid languages in performances and scenographic constellations. She investigates interactions that occur between these different realities and how they can intensify and alter our perception of space and time.
The focus on notions of time and duration is a recurring underlying presence in her work. By slowing down the tempo, even freezing it, Evelien tries to move herself and the spectator out of our daily speed, in order to generate a collective concentration. Space to alter the order of events. This is translated into interactions between past and present, memory and live experience or spatial interventions.
