Directors

Serge Goldwicht

Serge Goldwicht was born in Nivelles in 1954. He is living and working in Brussels.
His career is a perambulation/peregrination between art and philosophy, which he studied at the ULB (Brussels Free University) (1972)
“How Vision Became a Fable?”, “Kunst Macht Frei”, “B Terra Incognita”, “Autopictographic Reports”: these are the emblematic titles of a few of his exhibitions.
An expert in design, he worked for some years as the creative director of the Val Saint-Lambert crystal glassworks.
That is where he witnessed the fusion of glass and of its vagaries.
He is also author, his last book is the " Manuel de dessin sponatné à l'usage des adultes"" (Ed.L'Harmattan, Paris)
Drawing and painting led him on to video art in the form of the alluvial blotches which he films. That is how the “Blotch Project” was born in 2013.
The moving blotch, its suggestive powers and the multiplicity of potentialities are the source of this perambulation/peregrination which leads him to stage “graphic catastrophes”, as Deleuze calls them.

Biographies have been provided by third parties.
