Tell us, what do you do in life?
I’m finishing off my student life with one last year doing an educational master's degree in Sint-Lukas Brussels. Besides that, I’ve got three upcoming shows and I’m working on my first book!
What do you like best about your place?
Last year, I moved into an apartment in this old building in Brussels together with my girlfriend. We kind of went in hibernation mode during the pandemic which was actually really nice. The apartment offered us enough space to each do our own thing throughout the day. Also, it has some really big windows with bench-like window sills, where we would sit together for coffee breaks or to end the day with a glass of wine. And every time one of us gets excited about an idea or whatever, we’re like: ‘Come sit with me at the window and I will tell you all about it’.
What kind of music are you listening to at the moment?
It may be a bit of a cliché answer but I honestly listen to all sorts of music, so I can’t really give you a specific answer. I was brought up in a musical home, so I think that made me appreciate every genre. But to name one, my father once gave me Andreas Vollenweider’s album ‘Caverna Magica’ and it remains one of my all-time favourites.
What’s the first record you bought?
I think it was Herb Dub by Jah Lloyd, a dub record, which I bought when I was 15.
What’s your favourite pastime?
People-watching while enjoying a hot chocolate and a big piece of cheesecake. Or window shopping on Catawiki for expensive art books and posters, and occasionally giving in to the temptation.
Any guilty pleasures?
Riding my bike through the fields of Hoegaarden, giving it all I’ve got while blasting Katy Perry through my headphones.
If you could be famous, what kind of celebrity would you be?
The one with an Aston Martin db4 GT Zagato, a Jaguar XK120, a Maserati I A6 GC-53 Berlinetta Pininfarina, a Lamborghini Countach LP5000 QV, a Land Rover Defender and of course a Lada Niva in his garage, but actually still no driver’s license…
Have you experienced any regrets recently?
I try not to dwell on this feeling of regret for too long, because in the end everything always works out in one way or another. It seems there is this constant pressure to not make mistakes or the idea that regret is something negative. But for me, the thought of failing (‘nekeer goe tegen de lamp lopen’) is actually exciting rather than scary, because it often leads to new opportunities, new encounters and new ways of doing or seeing things.
Which future Different Class event are you looking forward to?
I’m excited to go visit the David Hockney exhibition in the Bozar.
Who do you wanna give credits to?
Only the best boy band in Belgium: Cassecouilles!
