Wouter Krokaert

Bio

The need to draw made Wouter Krokaert (1974, Belgium) study graphic design. During his studies he discovered dance, as a way to respond to that same need. Gradually different media and disciplines have started to reinforce each other and enrich that drawing. This has led to collaborations with Meg Stuart and Gary Hill, Rachid Ouramdane, Claude Wampler, Emmanuelle Huynh, Yukiko Shinozaki and Heine Avdal, Pieter Ampe, Barbara Mavro Thalassitis, Marc Vanrunxt, Germaine Kruip, Mette Edvardsen, and Christian Rizzo. He has made drawings for the Royal Museums of Art and History in Brussels, for the Museum of Fashion and Textile in Paris, and has shown his drawings during expositions in Espace le Carré (Lille), la Maison Grégoire (Brussels), museum M (Louvain), the Lux (Valence) or the ICI-CCN (Montpellier). He published the book Paysage avec Jeanne (edited at Frémok) and created the performance Kanttekenigen (drawings in the margins). For the last several years, he has been teaching at the faculty of architecture of the KU Leuven.
