Florence Cats is a visual and sound artist, curator, acupuncturist born in 1985 in Vilvoorde and based in Brussels. Her work includes sound, painting, drawing, video, installation, text and performance.
Her proposals are marked by resonance, sun, wind, walking, landscape, experiment and decay.
She often works by collaboration.
Her process starts outside, in nature or in the street - by walking, collecting and transforming remains, using color, assemblage, voice, word, gesture, or proceeding by transfer or quotation to compose poems and installations tuned to a given place. The correlation sets the frame. In her performance her theremin sounds vibrate according the fragility and irregularity of her body motion through air and silence.
