She’s co-founder of TAFEL, a collective with Neri De Meester, that experiments with food and performance via conceptual dinners and other gatherings.

Looking for moments to collectively share sounds, words and movements, she currently works with performance and sculptures. Her main inspiration comes from new materialism, psychoanalysis, poetry and queer theory.
