Alice De Mont & Graham Kelly
Alice De Mont born in 1985 in Ghent, Belgium. Lives and works in Brussels and Ghent, Belgium. Alice De Mont develops objects and subjects that are presented as characters in a film, scenography or installation. Mainly working with sculpture and video, different media are played out against each other and presented in unusual combinations.
In her practice, objects and subjects proceed gradually towards complexity. Her first movies (2006-2012) are filmed in black and white, human figures are reduced to objects in relation to other objects. Color and facial expressions were avoided, up until 2016. Gradually color, facial expressions, language, costumes and their interactions are established in her practice.
Graham Kelly is an artist, filmmaker and writer. His practice is situated in the interface between contemporary forms of image, the physical body and environment. By considering this interaction as an engulfing and continuous state or effect, his work seeks to expose and dissect power structures that are cast, distorted or enforced within it. His works have been screened and exhibited in a number of international contexts that include: Recontres Internationales, Kino der Kunst, Lo schermo dell’arte, EYE Filmmuseum, TENT, Transmission, Intermedia, Generator Projects and The Moscow Biennale for Young Art. He was a resident at the Jan van Eyck Academy in 2015/16.
