Joris Perdieus is a visual artist, scenographer, sounddesigner and independant PhD researcher at LUCA School Of Arts Brussels and KULeuven University.
He is a member of the INTERMEDIA  and  MEDIATED ENVIRONMENTS research groups.

Joris’ research is loacated in the field of Sensorial Scenographics and looks into matters concerning the significance of ALONENESS IN SPECTATORSHIP, in relation to immersive spatial art- and performative practices.

ALONENESS ? The state of being alone, solitude, ISOLATION

I would like to argue that there are sufficient indications that aloneness in spectatorship is imperative, and that it holds healing qualities, creates openings cognitive transformation and stimulants for personal growth, that do not appear in group-spectatorship.
Also, and maybe most importantly, solitary spectatorship can lead into multi- and micro-sensory experiences that are impossible to percieve in the presence of other people.

It is my believe that not only does the experience of such moments of hypersensoria must be considered a quality, present in every human. It is therefore something worth  searching for, possibly to be found in everyday ephemera, in nature, in architecture and in objects, materials or particles of water alike.


Joris lives & Works in Brussels, his studio is located in BAC-Art Lab, Leuven.

Joris is a founding member and Coordinator of TINY THINGS vzw, a platform for artistic research and production, mainly fascilitating the work of Evelien Cammaert and Joris Perdieus. TINY THINGS vzw also hosts the temporary and dynamic artistic Collective/Thinktank Ephemeral Focus. A group of likeminded artists in a changeable costellation. Current members include Karl Van Welden, Nick Steur, Lola Daels, Evelien Cammaert, Kevin Trappeniers and Joris Perdieus.
