Ariane Loze

Ariane Loze studied directing at the Royal Institute for Theatre, Cinema and Sound (RITCS) in Brussels, where she is also taking part in the a.pass programme (Advanced Performance and Scenography Studies). In 2016-2017, she was a resident at the Higher Institute of Fine Arts (HISK) in Ghent.

Her work is mainly characterised by video, through which she evokes today's world and its transformations, in relation to political commitment and the impact of technological developments on our lives. She takes an almost sociological look at the changes that are overturning our mental habits. In her short films, Ariane Loze uses field-contradiction and embodies all her characters. With an offbeat tone, she questions the codes of performance.

Recent solo exhibitions include Utopia at 40mcube in Rennes (2021), an exhibition of 7 short films at Radar - l'Espace d'art actuel in Bayeux (2020) and Nein Weil Wir at S.M.A.K. in Ghent (2019). Ariane Loze's videos were presented at the Salon de Montrouge in Paris in May 2018, and selected for the Movimenta prize in Nice (2017). Ariane Loze was awarded the Prix Médiatine in Brussels (2016), and won prizes at the Art Contest Brussels (2015), the Art For All Society in Macau (2016) and the Festival Côté court in Pantin (2017). She has taken part in several group exhibitions, most recently Modern Love at the MNAM, the National Museum of Contemporary Art in Athens (2023), and You are such a curator! at the De Appel contemporary art centre in Amsterdam (2016). The works are at MAC's Grand-Hornu, the Banque Nationale de Belgique and the Musée communal d'Ixelles in Belgium, and at the Centre national des arts plastiques (Cnap) in Paris.
