With Moving Identity, video artist Ilke De Vries gave five participants with psychological vulnerabilities the opportunity to learn to film their daily lives themselves. For two years, they met monthly in the Kunstencentrum De Loods. They showed each other's video and audio material, discussed its content, looked at possible techniques and talked about possible next steps. Moving Identity, the result of this intensive collaboration process, offers an insight into the creative ways these people find to deal with their turbulent lives.
In our golden auditorium, you can discover the joint video installation Struggle and the 5 video portraits:

About Ilke De Vries
Ilke De Vries (1981) is a video artist who lives and works in Antwerp. She is fascinated by what are the driving forces in people's lives. Fears, vulnerabilities, conflicts and the changes throughout a life often come up in her video work. She always looks at these aspects from a specific context. The results of these intense collaborative projects are experimental documentaries and recordings in which she serenely reduces personal thoughts, behaviour and actions to their essence.
You can find more information on her website.
This video installation is from 25 March to 10 April 2021. The full duration of all videos together is 70 minutes.
