Elise Guillaume

Hybrid Terrains

Elise Guillaume is a Belgian artist and filmmaker whose work explores our complex relationship with nature, which has become increasingly imbalanced and separated. Interested in the connections within our (eco)systems, she uses multiple screens to create contrasting narratives to question what it means to be human in a time of crisis and extinction. The body is a key element in Guillaume’s work; it is a vessel for interpreting living beings that form our natural world, on both a micro and macro level. With this in mind, the body becomes a meeting point between viewer and subject matter to encourage discourse regarding multi-species kinship.
