hi :) i’m Lau, a [     ] ]     [ non-binary, human art worker based in Brussels, Belgium. i’m interested in processes of sensorial t r a n s / formation and re – membering; how we make sense as embodied and situated human life forms; how our becomings unfold ‘sensation level up’ /in/out; how we   un   . .s.e.n.s.e.. our ‘selves,’ each other and the –\  , : – relational (ever-changing) spaces “_______” in between; what there is to attend (/learn) (/shift) across historical and ancestral processes of social formation, revolution and movement; what re-connection means; and what a ‘sensorial politics’ –a politics rooted not merely in representation but sensitivity– can/could engage. ** i advocate for non-binary yet non-innocent modes of relating :            : for  o p e n i n g s

my background is in durational performative drawing, glass restoration as well as art education. from 2020 till 2022 ive been studying within the context of DAI Art Praxis, during which ive focused on intersecting questions of specifically feminist, (pre-/post-/anti-/)colonial and queer inheritance and movement, attending from a lived and situated touch point with my grandmother’s “trace-monument” (a grandmother who was active in the 60s and 70s women’s movement, who was born in then the Dutch Indies, and who i never met in flesh). im currently continuing this research in the form of a historical poly-voiced fiction; and i’m developing craft- and poetry-engaged community art projects with children and in intergenerational context in Brussels (and elsewhere).

i work across (non)separations of manual, sensorial, lingual and relational processes, and am interested in collaboration as well as open-ended conversation ~ if you feel like sending me a message please do
