VONK_studios is a residency place for artists who work in the cross-over between performance art and visual arts. At our Vonk_veldeman building in Hasselt we invite, on yearly bases, 15 artists to work for free at our studio. Apart from free studio space we support the artists with studio visits, dramaturgical support and financial guidance.

NOW SHE TURNS HER HEAD TO THE RIGHT BUT THAT MEANS NOTHING
What means artificial light and pointing out, what means exposing yourself, what means the dark, the night (the mare of it or the dream in it)? What is storytelling nowadays? From my point of view, isn’t performing in the black box something like performing for the camera and if performing is showing ideas:
Lin Gerritse (1988) Visual artist In collaboration with Alexa Moya Panksep (1997) Dance artist
The work of Lin Gerritse (*1988) evolves out of an experimental process, which stays visible in the pragmatically put together installations.
Evelien Cammaert (Brussels, 1986) is a transdisciplinary artist. She studied photography (LUCA Brussels, Narafi, 2010) and performance (Maastricht Institute of Performative Arts, 2016). With a background in both disciplines and an interest for the interactions that occur between the realities of different media, she creates a hybrid language resulting in performances and immersive installations.
Jivan_VAN DER ENDE
The artistic practice of Jivan van der Ende (b. 1993, NL) consists of installations, performances and publications. In her practice she questions the status given to objects, whether artifacts or utensils. Her researching method is based on the act of endless combining, documenting, collecting and (re)searching.
Joris Perdieus is a visual artist, scenographer, sound-designer and researcher. He is a member of the Intermedia and Mediated Environments research groups at LUCA School Of Arts Brussels and KULeuven. Recently he has investigated Non-Visual Scenographics and Sensory Hyperfocus.
Meryem Bayram (1981, Belgium) graduated at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp as sculptor and studied scenography at POPOK in Antwerp. Since 2006 she works as artistic collaborator for Platform 0090. In the work of Bayram the unfolding relation between human behaviour and a constructed spatial environment is the central driving force.
We have to start from the ground up and lose each biased thought we collectively generated throughout our evolution in terms of what it means to be human.
Our language, moral ideas, prescribed systems… need to be rewritten or rewired to give a contemporary touch.
