Lives and works in Liège, Belgium.

Presentation
Aline Bouvy's multidisciplinary practice is inhabited by her refusal to compromise and adapt to the systems of our society that aim to regulate our desire, conforming it to the norms and values that form that same society. Through the implementation of poetic strategies and a rigorous aesthetic with committed humour, she questions established hierarchies of power and patriarchal systems. Her practice strives to confront what is considered unusual, through narratives often rooted in the very context of the places where she presents her work, simultaneously questioning the artist's role and commitment. After many years of collaborative artistic activities, she began a personal practice in 2013. His work is represented by Nosbaum & Reding Gallery in Luxembourg and Albert Baronian Gallery in Brussels.
