ROOM 2

Olympe Tits
Gestes Vivants
12 Feb. - 14 Mar.


 
Olympe Tits (Marseille, 1992) is a self-taught photographer, dancer and choreographer residing in Brussels. Olympe started her training as a professional dancer at the Royal Ballet School of Antwerp at the age of 8 and graduated there at the age of 18. After those studies she developed as a contemporary dancer at the Royal Conservatory of Contemporary Dance in Antwerp. She danced in various projects and created her own choreographies that took place on several stages. Because she has always been very interested in creating art with different media, such as dance, music, writing and video, she decided to teach herself photography at the age of 19. The influence of her career as a dancer is reflected in her conceptual work.

In Olympe Tits photography, opposites complement each other. Contrasting colors demarcate planes in space and thus draw figures. The soft texture of a skirt settled on the stone floor. Various elements enter into a dialogue caused by contrast. Just like opposites, a ceaseless game of attracting and repelling play with each other.

The characters in Olympe’s photography are young dancers, always women. They look like wanting to go somewhere, but not getting there, they reach for the unattainable. There’s a before and after in every photo. The movement from then to later is still in the now.
