Laurie Charles (b. 1987, Belgium. Works and lives in Brussels) graduated from the School of Fine Arts in Bordeaux, France. Charles video-works stage friends, actors, curators and artists in a game of multiple references framed within her sculptural installations. Those narrative films are frequently contextualised inside site-specific scenographic environments made for the gallery; objects turn alive within Charles' videos through a process of humanisation: using voices to draw absurd and polysemic dialogues. High and low, counter-culture or philosophy towards post-Internet aesthetics gather in a large pop and folk multiple faced discourse; all that research contained in a practice that meets DIY, amateurism in video and a certain "degenerated craftsmanship".
