Lorde Selys is an artist working collaboratively with words, lenses, multi-definitions of space, their users and inhabitants. Her works, including texts, screenings, performances and installations were presented internationally: in Belgium (Etablissements d’en face, Acedemie Royale des Beaux-Arts, and De La Charge), Lebanon (Ashkal Alwan, 98Weeks, Centre Culturel Français & Beirut Art Center), France (Palais de Tokyo, No Found Photo Fair), Poland (Ujazdowski Castle Centre for Contemporary Art), Italy (Mediterranea 16), Norway (Hardbakka Ruins Project), Germany (Arab Film Festival AlFilm), and Palestine (Al-Mahatta Gallery, Qalandia Biennale, Benjamin in Palestine). Between 2006 and 2010 she collaborated with the Aether9 group – an online platform for transnational story-telling and real-time performance – as a scriptwriter, actor and photographer. She currently researches human versus nonhuman logics of memory, their dramaturgic, and political form of cohabitation at the Visual Culture department at Goldsmith College, London.
