Emmanuel Van der Auwera lives and works in Brussels, Belgium. Through films, VideoSculptures, conceptual projects and installations, Van Der Auwera unravels the simulation and framing of messages, exploring conceptual and formal filters in the production and dissemination of images. He studied in France at the École supérieure d’Art in Clermont-Ferrand (2005-2008) and at Le Fresnoy: Studio national des arts contemporains (2008-2010). He is Laureate of a post-academic course at the Higher Institute of Fine Arts (HISK) in Ghent (2014-2015) and recipient of the Langui Award of the Young Belgian Art Prize. His work has recently featured in exhibitions at Wiels, Centre Pompidou, BIP - Biennale de l’Image Possible, Extra City, Meymac Contemporary Art Centre, “Indiscipline,” Palais de Tokyo (curated by Devrim Bayar/WIELS), “Now Belgium Now,” LLS 387, Antwerp, “A Prisoner’s Cinema,” Iselp, and “The End of the World,” Centro per l’Arte Contemporanea Luigi Pecci (Prato, Italy). Van der Auwera’s work was part of the exhibition “Angst” at the Museum Dr. Guislain in Ghent, Belgium as well as the exhibition EcceHomo in Antwerp, and is currently on view in the exhibition “Private Choices” (featuring works from 11 leading private Belgian collections).
