Axelle Lenaerts

Graduation year




As a filmmaker and visual artist I explore the world in a poetic way. I translate emotions and stories into images, making use of, alternating and mixing, the media film, photography, drawings and text. Starting from myself and my environment, I portray people, places and feelings in an intimate way. I constantly ask myself many questions, about cultures, about psychology, about nature, in short about life itself. Therefore topics like memory, identity, anthropology and language are a constant in my work.
