Liesbet Hermans (1981 Hasselt, Belgium) is a conceptual artist. She graduated as a Master in productdesign. As a designer, she was always fascinated by a form versus its content and in her designwork she was mostly devoted to the prototypical of a product. With her thesis the impact of human body language on design, she fused design and body for the first time and got more interested in bodywork in different contexts.
After intensive studies in physical theater and dance in Madrid and training in i.a. contemporary dance, performance, butoh and clowning, she developed a varied style of performances. In her work, she researches reality by asking the following question: where did we forgot to be human?
Currently she is based in Ghent (BE). She is initiator and artistic leader of Mute, silent artfestival and teaching corporal expression at Hogeschool Kortrijk. Her practice includes research, performing, directing and teaching.
