ABOUT

Stef Van Looveren (1992) is an Antwerp based multidisciplinary genderfluid artist. They studied Fine Arts at Central Saint Martins, London and Sint Lucas, Antwerp.

Stef Van Looveren’s practice translates itself into video installation, photo, sculpture and performance. Van Looveren uses the installations as an attempt to reflect and dismantle the performativity of our human behaviour, primarily within the notion of gender. Playfully mimicking our social conducts along with visual culture, their work moves towards a surreal gesture.

  • Proud to be part of this historic moment• @mhkamuseum [PART 1] #onthisday 50 years ago the first NY Pride march was held as an answer to the police raid that took place exactly one year earlier in The Stonewall Inn, a West Village gay bar. Ever since the LGBTQIA+ community organises events and parades to raise awareness to several societal issues and stand proud all the same.
🏳️‍🌈
The same goes for @antwerppride. Only this year will be the first time without a parade, manifestations or celebrations, because of the Corona measures. The organisation of Antwerp Pride has therefore decided to program smaller events under the name 'Together we Pride'.
🏳️‍🌈
And together we will, because we are proud to present TOGETHER., the very first LGBTQIA+ exhibition in our country which also marks the start of Pride 2020. The exhibition runs from 5 August to 6 September and is curated by Philip Huyghe. We invite several artists, including Carla Arocha & Stéphane Schraenen, Marijke De Roover, Philip Huyghe and Stef Van Looveren, to work together in a bubble of their own on themes that strengthen the LGBTQIA+ community, and create an inclusive exhibition. The invited artists, such as Megan-Leigh Heilig, Jack Pierson, Cindy Sherman and Nan Goldin aim to use their visual language to shape an environment that celebrates diversity as a quality that brings exciting and challenging ideas to the world we all live in.
