about

Mieke Vanmechelen (Antwerp, 1974, lives in Ireland) works at the intersection of experimental moving-image media and documentary film. Exploring themes of cultural legacy and temporality, Vanmechelen’s visual narratives are founded on an ongoing dialogue between body and place. This often involves animal and\or human representations that are convergent with a psychological as well as physical landscape. Amidst current collapsing geographies and hyper-urbanised environments, she asks us to consider the spiritual, ethereal, and physical connections present in our own thirst for being.

Selected films have been shown at the Verbeke Foundation, Belgium, Dupont Underground, Washington D.C., Dingle International Film Festival, Kerry and Void, Derry, Northern Ireland. She is a member of LUX Critical Forum Cork.
