Lize Verlooy

aka Lize BLAUW

I am a freelance artist  and performer . Driven by my fascination for  natural processes  and the deeper mechanics of life ,i  started digging in the alchemy of ceramics and its geological principles . Creating lavas and melted earth … 

In search for the mechanics and the deeper flux of life , always looking for the soul in things , i create  multi-media sculptures and installations , assemblings that  mixes  multiple techniques into  cinematic installations.

Recylced fairytales fusing mythology , archetypes and animism with contemporary thematics. An artistic shamanic ritual. 

Interactive and open for dialogue.

 

After finishing a Master in Ceramics at PHIKO in Hasselt in 1995 ,  i continued  a long traject   crossing many other disciplines   and collaborations . Textile , figure theater , drawing ,lighting technics …the urge to learn is a state of mind in adaptability.

 

My works appeared in several Europian cities , Robodock Amsterdam , Bifff Brussel ,Rdece Zora in Slovenia 

In 2010 i started collaborating  with circus ,theater and music.

I work regurlary with Gokhan Girginol , in Wozeck and Robin Hassan Hood. 

Since 2011 i became a partner in crime in Post.TRAUM collective . In the  transdisplinary dance  performance ‘Beyond the Body’ we  explore the poetics of the speaking body and the language of senses. Between speech and speechlessness. 

 

More recently i developed a wide range of life visuals  in ‘The Arch’ in Genk. The tubular construction of  Construct lab and the research on  plastic recycling engaged into  a light laboratorium created with liquids  and raw materials . 

 

Since a couple of years i involved in the collectiveness of the musical constellation ‘Planete concrète ‘ Not as a creature but as Number 78.3 .  Probing performative journeys into frequenties through Europe interfering with other strange lovely creatures and circumstances.
