BIO

 

Miet Warlop (°1978) is a Belgian visual artist born in Torhout. She lives and works between Ghent , Berlin and Brussels.


 

Miet Warlop holds a master degree in Multimedial Arts from KASK, Ghent. For her graduation project Huilend Hert, Aangeschoten Wild, an ‘inhabited installation consisting of six scenes and a crawling subject’, she won the Franciscus Pycke Jury Award and the residence prize for Young Theatre Work 2004.


 

Many other performances, actions and projects followed and in 2005 she premiered SPORTBAND /Afgetrainde Klanken a 40’ performance, 20 people racing against time through music and sports. In the context of Lovepangs (Vooruit, 2005) she created the one-on-one performance Koester de Kersen. From January 2006 until November 2007 Warlop was one of the six artists of DE BANK (arts centre CAMPO, Ghent), where she was working on her series of ‘Propositions’, called Grote Hoop / Berg. In between, she was responsible for the set design for performances by Pieter Genard, Raven Ruëll, DitoDito-Jef Lambrecht, KVS (Brussels), arts centre Vooruit (Ghent) and Les Ballets C de la B (Ghent).


 

While she was touring the ‘Propositions’ all over Europe, she realised Springville, a 50 minute game of chaos, expectation and surprise, in which scenography, costumes, props and characters are closely interwoven and merged together. Springville premièred in May 2009 at arts centre Buda (Kortrijk).


 

Miet Warlop moved to Berlin for two years, to concentrate on her visual work and prepare a new piece called Mystery Magnet, which premiered at KunstenFestivalDesArts (Brussels) in May 2012. Mystery Magnet Won the stuckemarkt theatertreffen prize at the Berliner Festspiele for new forms of theatre. The show is still touring all over the world.


 

In the course of 2012-2013 she explored different possibilities with her nerveous pictures and performances, through projects and invitations, both in a visual arts as in a theatre context (Baltic Triennial (Vulnius), Hebbel am Ufer (Berlin), Lisson Gallery (London). In November 2012 she did a kick-off at Beursschouwburg (Brussels) with the Alligator project: a weekend of combined media and performances by different artists and musicians like Reggie Watts and Michael Portnoy Invited by Miet Warlop herself. Miet was artist in residence at the Beursschouwburg in Brussels for the last 4 years.


 

In 2014 Miet Warlop started her own structure vzw Irene Wool. In October 2014 the first production Dragging the Bone premiered at Beursschouwburg Brussels, it is a solo performance on a sculpted planet. In 2015 she opened the festivities that celebrated the 50 years of Beursschouwburg Brussels with the piece Taking off with a Rocket to the Grit. Art Gallery Barbican London asked her for a performance in the project Station to Station hosted by Doug Aitken. The rest of the year Miet is touring her solo Dragging the Bone and celebrating the 100th show of Mystery Magnet in Ghent, Porto and Bordeaux. She finishes the year by opening her first solo exhibition project in KIOSK gallery Ghent.


 

Currently Miet is preparing a new show titled Fruits Of Labor for KUNSTENFESTIVALDASARTS 2016.
