Mathieu Hendrickx (°1987)

studied psychology (2006-2009) at the University of Ghent and Audiovisual arts at

LUCA School of Arts in Brussels (2009-2013, MA).

His artistic practice focuses on film and performance, where both fields influence one another. In his studio he produces and collects objects, sculptures, collage of texts, images and sounds that form an eclectic playground as a starting point for future works. Next to that, for more than ten years now, he's been looking at his own hands, other peoples' hands, and how they relate to one another.

In 2014 he founded  Messervideo, a  Brussels based videoteam, together with three fellow students from art school. They have worked for i.a. Meg Stuart Damaged Goods, Two Envelopes 2 @ Atelier Claus, Youth Orchestra Flanders, Heike Langsdorf, Beursschouwburg, Galerie Greta Meert, Myriam Van Imschoot, Goethe Institut,

Musée d'Ixelles, Vlaams Radio Koor, Art Brussels, De Singel, Bas Devos…

Since 2017 he participates every year in the Moerdijk Sculpture Group, a residency project

initiated by Bart Lescrève & Lieven Debrabandere. Since 2018, he co-organises this residency together with Bart Lescrève.
