Mathieu Hendrickx studied psychology at the University of Ghent (2006-2009) and audiovisual arts at LUCA School of Arts in Brussels (2009-2013, MA).
Together with some friends from art school, he founded the film collective Messervideo. They have worked for i.a. Meg Stuart Damaged Goods, Art Brussels, Youth Orchestra Flanders, Beursschouwburg, etc. His own artistic practice is a dialogue between film and performance. Recently, he worked on a documentary project with Oleg Danilov; The Country Was Stolen.
Since several years he’s been looking at his own hands, other people’s hands, their gestures & how they relate to one another.
Until now, these observations result into props for a performance, short video sketches & texts. www.mathieuhendrickx.com
