About artist Veronique Desmet

THIS IS MY LAND

This is my land, my country. I have been here often. To play, to ride my bicycle, to go to play tennis, to study my exams, to run, to train, to walk and relax, to laugh, and to cry.

Here I found the softness of the silence and the quietness of the space. The wind and the voice of my father telling me the story of each visible point on the horizon.

I have been there to remember what I did experiment there, and to forget what i just experiment before. To feel that person inside me evolve.

It was me in all my states. There I was breathing and finding myself back. There was nothing. Nothing could happen or surprise me. I was there.

And now that I am not there anymore, I know that I still walk there. I know that every cells of my body and my feet are constantly alert. Ready to relax there, wherever I am.

I studied sports and visual arts. My passions are about colour, movement and natural environment.
My video works allow me to play between form and movement.
For me the quality of the video projection is like an ephemeral graffiti. Capturing the essence of the movement, and reflecting the magic of its disappearance. An everyday life experiment.
