Véronique Desmet (1964) studied Physical Education & Biology, Visual Arts (painting – video installation), Aura-Soma (light based therapy), and Shambhala Art (a buddhist approach to explore the creative process).
She is interested in bringing together world that are so-called from different origins and exploring what their simultaneous presence creates in a space. As a video artist, she creates moments of coexistence. Coexistence doesn’t require any specific action, the presence is the creative agent.
Her video works are like drops, spaces of light that we choose to see or not to see : sunlight on the kitchen bench on a sunday morning. A pause. They appear, repeat themselves and unroll for the duration of a moment in a chosen space. They open our space of perception to our environment. They bring us back to ourselves.
