Martin Belou (b. 1986, France) creates performative situations and experiences with the four elements: earth, water, air, and fire. Driven by intuition and artisanal savoir faire, he combines sculpture, drawing, and organic materials (mushrooms, spices, wood, stone, metal, chalk, etc.) in installations that often deal with universal notions of craftsmanship, tradition, and community.
He founded De La Charge, an artist-run space that was active for three years in Brussels, as well as the independent art agenda The Walk. His work has been shown in various project spaces, institutions, and galleries in France, Belgium, Mexico, and Germany.
