WOUTER KROKAERTPRINT THIS PAGE
The need to draw made Wouter Krokaert study graphic design. And it was during these studies that he discovered dance, as a way to respond to that same need. 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, amongst others. 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 also published the book Paysage avec Jeanne (edited at Frémok) – in which he confronted his drawings with these of Jeanne Le Peillet. He created the performance Kanttekenigen (drawings in the margins) and for the last several years, he has been teaching at the faculty of architecture of the KU Leuven, on the campus Sint-Lucas Brussels and Ghent.
