Exhibitions of the HYBRID_MATTERs project

The artworks of Lawrence Malstaf (Belgium) are situated on the borderline between visual and theatrical forms of expression. He creates installations and performance art with a strong focus on elements such as movement, coincidence, chaos and order, in space and in objects, using sensory devices that respond to onlookers who are present.

He is also known to be an innovative scenographer and production designer in the field of dance and theatre. He currently lives and works in Tromsø.
