Tell us, what do you do in life?
I’m currently studying cultural management at UAntwerp. It gives me a whole new perspective on my Master of Fine Arts, because of its economic and non-romantic approach. Looking for different perspectives on the same thing fascinates me. My artistic practice has always been about rearranging layers and repeating common visual cues. I’m looking for contrast within materials and an abundance of the same object to recreate a sense of dysfunction. I’m not a logical or structured thinker, I guess.
What do you like best about your place?
I have a co-working atelier in Ossenstraat Gent. De blauwe poort is the homebase of De Zwarte Zusters, a music collective I’m part of as a violinist. I love the way this place represents collaborative thinking and explicitly choosing to work/act together. We share resources, skills and friendships so that we go further than the individual.
What kind of music are you listening to at the moment?
I tend to listen to the same music over and over again. Habitual Love by Okay Kaya is mostly playing in the background.
What’s the first record you bought?
The single album Firework, by Katy Perry
What’s your favourite pastime?
I have been enjoying cooking these last couple of months. I like to go through Instagram and recreate recipes to see if they are as good as they look on video. Zero-waste grocery shopping also has its own thinking pattern which I like.

Any guilty pleasures?
Kim Petras will always bring a kind of plastic pleasure. Her songs have a one-driven emotion, a single-minded message, which I enjoy. Her live performance skills are to die for.
If you could be famous, what kind of celebrity would you be?
I would look for a way to share my famousness.
Have you experienced any regrets recently?
I used a hot-water bottle for the first time. You need to cover it with a towel, or you get burned.
Which future Different Class event are you looking forward to?
Malus at KVS Brussels on 23 April.
Who do you wanna give credits to?
My sweet boyfriend.
