Cédric Noël (°1978, Argenteuil, FR; live and work in Brussels BE) is a visual artist exploring the plasticity of information and the relationships between words and things, between thinking and its translations. His work is inspired by methods used in the scientific field of research, which he reinvests in new forms shaped by language. Art studies at La Villa Arson (Nice FR) and Laureat of the HISK (Antwerpen BE). Exhibitions at BOZAR (Brussels BE), ERBAN (Nantes FR), CAC (Vilnius LT), MUHKA (Antwerpen BE), Contour Biennale (Mechelen BE), Emergent Gallery (Veurne BE) Museum of Architecture (Tallinn BE), Frans Hals Museum (Haarlem NL)... Current professor at ENSAV La Cambre (Brussels BE). Co-founder with Mira Sanders of The Mental Masonry Lab.
Mira Sanders (b. 1973) studied Fine Arts at Sint-Lukas Brussels and is lector/ researcher at the KU Leuven Faculty of Architecture Campus Sint-Lucas Brussels/Ghent. Her oeuvre consists of video works, drawings and installations, in which a constant quest emerges for the places, people and stories they contain. Mira Sanders’ current work focuses on the positioning of objects, people or events in physical spaces and on the actual terrain. Her visual language consists of meticulous lines, markings, borders, routes, maps, plans and drawings that describe, read spaces, and outline imaginary journeys in an attempt to surpass the limits of language. In the grey zone between architecture and city planning she explores the notion of “public” space: its physical limits, narratives that contribute to its formation, or its configuration in time.
Raymond Balau (°1957) is an architect, city planner, art & architecture critic (AICA / SCAM), head of the Urban Space department of the school of arts ENSAV La Cambre, Brussels.

The practice of Anaïs Chabeur is composed of videos, photographs, texts and objects. Memory, ritualism, finitude: her pieces invite the viewer to feel time and intimacy through strong sensorial experiences where spatio-temporal lines are blurred and transgressed. The physical realm becomes a transitory space between worlds : that of the artist, the memory and the spectator, whose position vary between voyeur, accomplice and confidant. They enter a space beyond the gaze. She graduated in 2016 with a master in « Espace Urbain » in La Cambre, Brussels. She was a resident at the HISK in Gent for the years 2017 & 2018. Her recent exhibitions include « A computer does not hesitate », solo show at Botanique, Brussels, « Soft Elements of Some Violent Tendencies », Kunsthal Extra City, Antwerpen, « Where widowed objects meet orphaned ideas », CIAP, Hasselt, « De Beeldenstorm », Brakke Grond, Amsterdam.
