Maria Blondeel is a Belgian artist, photographer and scientific associate at KASK, Gent. Known
for her sound art works, she has developed her own unique visual style, which is characterized
as an interdisciplinary, experimental approach to technology, image, light and sound.
The abstract, airtight, ambiguous and ambivalent process of generative transmutations that opens up a performance of an unseen scene of image and sound in many of her works have gained her films the reputation to bring their audiences beyond the mental event.
In 2010 Maria Blondeel was awarded official guest of North-Rhine Westphalia in the scope of the state grant awarded in cooperation with the City of Düsseldorf and Medienwerk-NRW. She has resided in Düsseldorf in order to work on her sound-and-video project A40 RUHR. The DVD A40 RUHR was premiered at the Happy New Festival of Kortrijk in Belgium.
