Biography

My research focuses on filmic narrativity in contemporary artists’ feature films (Apichatpong Weerasethakul, Ben Rivers, Albert Serra).

During my studies at the ULB I benefited from a strong engagement with eco-critical thinking, inspired by Isabelle Stengers. I investigated in my Master’s theses how literature (Nathalie Sarraute) and cinema (Apichatpong Weerasethakul, Ben Rivers) question teleological and anthropocentric narrative schemes. In 2014, I moved to Berlin to follow a cultural management curriculum. The financial and symbolic economies of the moving-image started to fascinate me. I worked for art institutions, film festivals (in Glasgow, San Sebastián, Brussels, Madrid) in an effort to practically appreciate the tangled networks of filmic distribution and production. In 2016, I came back to the ULB to lay the foundations for my doctoral research and commence analysis of artist-filmmakers’ alternative storytelling practices. Over my travels abroad, I experienced first-hand the richness of international encounters for my research. I am eager to continue untangling nods along these lines during my stay at Yale.
