Ciel Grommen (1989) extended her training in architecture at the University of Leuven (2012) with a master in contemporary art at the HEAD in Geneva (2015). What follows is a trans-disciplinary research practice focussing on different "states of exception" and "spaces of hospitality". Intense fieldwork is central to her methodology. Through maps, images, instructions and installations she subsequently invites the public to imagine another perception of space.
Works have been exhibited in Artsonje Art Centre, Seoul; Live In Your Head Gallery, Geneva; Luma foundation Arles; Zolder Luchtfabriek; Beursschouwburg Brussels; Z33, centre for contemporary art in Hasselt... Works even more often appear in the "real" world, such as Petit Chateau, asylum centre in Brussels; the post box of her neighbor; online; on the Aldi parking lot of Borgloon, ... In 2015, she was selected for the BNP Paribas Fortis New Heads art award with her research on freeports and warehouses in Geneva.
