Born 1987 in Belgium. Works and lives in Brussels.
Laurie Charles graduated from the School of Fine Arts in Bordeaux, France. Charles video-works stage friends, actors, curators and artists in a game of multiple references framed within her sculptural installations. Those narrative films are frequently contextualised inside site-specific scenographic environments made for the gallery; objects turn alive within Charles’ videos through a process of humanisation: using voices to draw absurd and polysemic dialogues. High and low, counter-culture or philosophy gather in a large pop and folk multiple faced discourse; all that research contained in a practice that meets DIY, amateurism in video and a certain “degenerated craftsmanship”. Between other venues, her work has been exhibited at Komplot (BE), Le Commissariat (FR), Villa Arson (FR) and Triangle (FR).
