Jeremy with his photography tries to capture glances of a parallel world by pinpointing the nuances of a seemingly chaotic mass from within.
One of the main goals is to keep traces of the rituals of the nightlife and archiving them.
The idea is not only to work as a cameraman in terms of an outsider capturing moments via his lens, but to completely immerse himself in this so called hedonistic safari and become a creature of the night by giving back to the vibe, partaking wholeheartedly in the endeavor at play to then capture the moments from the inside.

Composed by Hoel and Leo , the “Four-Handed” formation has steadily been crafting cybernated gothic music from the depths of their narrow basement; Drawing inspiration from dark dungeons murky synthpunk and industrial machinery collinding in fervor and howls. Their music feels as muscular and drenched as one could expect from their thrilling performances.
Free falling tumultuous bass line lacerated by ominous muffled barking and groans. Bone-Bending primitive techno catapulted over the walls in the most urgent fashion. At times , it very much feels like trying to dance on some sort of cryptic electronic body music in a heavy chain-mail , or at least we urge to do do.

Antoine Grenez (1994, vit et travaille à Bruxelles) a étudié la photo à l’ERG (Ecole de Recherche Graphique) dans l’atelier de Gilbert Fastenaekens. Il poursuit ensuite un Master à Sint-Lukas Bruxelles avec Aglaia Konrad. Antoine Grenez a déjà quelques solides projets derrière lui, dont une exploration du paysage des carrières avec Léo Seyers, qui donnera lieu au livre et à l’exposition Gisements en 2016.
Issu d’une pratique plutôt documentaire à la base, Antoine Grenez s’est récemment tourné vers des recherches où la réalité et la fiction s’entremêlent. Il explique : « Mon travail a dès lors pris un caractère étrange, à la lisière du monde connu, cherchant un exotisme presque extra-terrien dans mes images. La recherche d’une certaine étrangeté me suit maintenant lors de mes voyages. Lorsque je suis parti en Finlande pour réaliser Tracks (2017), le paysage entièrement recouvert par la neige permettait un pouvoir d’abstraction sur l’activité humaine présente. Cela a confirmé en moi ce besoin de fiction narrative .»
