born in 1996 (Montréal, Canada)
based in Brussels (Belgium)

Camille Poitevin is a french multidisciplinary artist based in Brussels. She lets herself be guided by her restless curiosity and explores images in all their shapes. From mapping to 3D scanning, the technique required by a new medium is never an obstacle. She prefers to tame it in her own way and make a more personal use of it. Because Camille does not create to satisfy our desires for contemplation, but rather to awaken our needs for introspection. Convinced that time for self-questioning is becoming too rare in a fast-paced world, that everything, even our relationships, is consumed mechanically and at high speed, she creates to make room for time. Time for awareness. Time for challenging the status quo. What the society peddles, Camille Poitevin seeks to freeze. Mixing different techniques, she strips, decomposes, diverts... Her works border on the absurd. To question what is certain. They create a lack. To query the overflow. A real emotional journey, perhaps the only one from now on to appreciate what surrounds and unites us. Camille Poitevin plays with our perceptions, shakes up our most ordinary beliefs and habits, the better to disturb - and even succeed in undoing? - what plays out in us on a daily basis.
