Physicality is the filter that highlights issues intrinsic to the human being and his poetics.

Isobel Blank's training includes disciplines such as theatre, dance, drawing, sculpture, music and photography, which not only develop independently but also merge into a fusion of performance art and video. His visionary and surreal research places his own body at the centre of the work. Physicality is the filter that highlights the issues intrinsic to the human being and his poetics. In addition to the focus on the self-portrait, the themes of collective and individual memory in constant dialogue with identity are particularly important. The aim of his work is to create a place where intimacy can tend towards the universal.
