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.
