Een surrealistische videotrip

Antwerp artist Stef Van Looveren's work is a mix of video installation, photography and collage. In the installation / short film 'Radical Hope' he depicts various stages in society, or life in general. He characterises each stage with a particular emotion: Sadness, Anger, Desire, Happiness, Spite and Terror. 25 characters pass through the six stages before finally becoming one. Van Looveren himself can be spotted as a participant in the film – playing a bride – and actively as a discreet observer.

In his work Van Looveren attempts to reflect and dissect the performativity of our human behaviour, placing a particular focus on gender. He mimics our social behaviour and visual culture, to uncanny effect.
