°1969, lives and works in Lustin

In Benoît Felix his cut-out drawings, the treat in crayon or ink literally frees itself from the frame and traces itself into the dispositions of space. By cutting out the representation of a subject and positioning it in the space, he gives back to the drawing its value as an existence in reality. Having a background in Lacanian psychoanalysis Felix uses the ambiguity of language as a performing art. Fascinated by the possibilities of digital video he creates layers of visibility in the image-frame and hors-champ.

Benoît Felix exhibits since 1992 and was laureate of the price Georges Collignon, MAMAC (Liège) in 2003. He had his first soloshow in Brussels in 2005 'Dessiner' at Office d'Art Contemporain. Many will follow in Belgium and abroad. Next to his cut-out drawings, (video-)performances became part of is body of work. In 2015 Felix presents his playful video-performance 'Running after' during Performatic, Kaaitheater, Brussels and in 2016 a duo-show with Bernard Gaube in Botanique, Brussels. His collaboration with Olivier Nottelet during Antwerp Art Weekend 2017 was an eye-catcher.
