Lucile Desamory


Lucile Desamory (Belgium, 1977), who lives and works in Berlin, is an artist, filmmaker, actress and musician. She is interested in the frontiers of perception, in the ‘too much’, the esoteric, the falsified – in the spurned narratives. This interest in marginal phenomena always requires to change the medium. She uses painting, drawing, embroidery, collage, photography, film and her voice.

Desamory combines these techniques into larger webs such as installations, films (in all genres), radio plays and live performances. Amongst others, she made the installation Wild Inconsistency (Beaufort Triennale, 2015), the film ABRACADABRA (Tate Modern and Anthology Film Archive NYC, 2013) and the radio plays and performance Asteroseismology (2018) with Sabine Ercklentz and Margareth Kammerer. Many projects are created as collaborations. She has collaborated amongst others with Kevin Blechdom, Nicholas Bussmann and Luke Fowler on film and music, Antonia Baehr and Lucy McKenzie on installations and film.
