b. 1979, Belgium

I am interested in the image of my body, the structure of the space, the properties of the material. By putting those three elements into a relationship, I’m looking for unusual, somewhat minimal actions which stimulate the interpretation of the audience. I’m following my intuitions, in the belief that they will translate my way to live in this world now. I’m interested in the perceptions by the body and the creation by improvisation, because for art I trust body, intuition and improvisation more than mental reflexion.

Born in 1979, Alice De Visscher lives and works in Brussels. She studied theatre and after graduating in 2004, worked mainly in visual and experimental theatre in Belgium. Since 2006, her work has focused on performance art and video, as well as drawing and installation with paper. Her work has been presented in Belgium, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, France, Poland, Lithuania, Singapore, Thailand, Korea, Israel, USA and Canada.

Just as a performance artist uses their body as their medium, this is a fragrance composed entirely of the orange tree: fruit, leaves, bark, roots, and flowers. Artist Orange performs itself.
