The Green Corridor welcomed Jolien Naeyaert for the second part of her residency, titled:
“The hand of the architect drawing lines on a
piece of paper is related to the body of a dancer
searching for a yet unseen choreography. In that
way, sketching during the design process is a way
of improvising. Because how can you draw what
you don’t know yet? How can you write what you
cannot yet put into words? How can you move
differently than before?”
(translated quote from Dutch text: ‘Ontwerpen
van binnenuit’, Jolien Naeyaert, 2018, A+27 Representation).
An engineer architect, and visual artist, Jolien
Naeyaert researches alternative ways of exploring and
representing architectural places. Focusing on different
media, she looks for ways to approach places actively.
The act of experience, of really being at a particular
place and discovering - through the presence of
your whole body - what lives at that specific place, is
essential for her work. Currently, she lives in Brussels
and has a studio at Level Five Brussels.
