Laure Winants, research-based artist from Brussels (b.1991)

Through interdisciplinary and experimental projects, she develops her work as a political place to explore, experiment elements, light and space. Her current projects crosses the boundaries of science and art, and draws upon collaborative works with geographers, geologists, and speculative philosophers.

Winants invites the viewer to cross into a new sensory space. She was recently in an Artist-in-Residence at GlogauAIR Berlin and now prep for the new collaboration with CNRS Toulouse.
