Inner Movement  

'Inner Movement' is the overarching title of the work that Monique Belier has completed in the past year: her successful graduation project – the photo-artist book 'Where the spirit meets the bone’ – and two new projects that are still in progress. The focus of her practice lies in delving into aspects of the human psyche, and making visible emotions for which we often have no words. Movement is an essential element of her photography and is necessary to capture these emotions, but is not the goal in itself. Many of the images revolve around a deep-rooted fear of disappearing, not being seen, or being consumed. With this, Monique Belier explores her own experiences with a panic disorder that has been playing a significant role in her life since 2017. The stories that emerge are raw and personal, yet at the same time universal and recognisable. Monique Belier invites the audience to recognise themselves in her artwork, in which both the subject and the environment reflect the inner movement of our deepest emotions. During opening hours, Monique will be present in Atelier K84 herself to explain her work to all visitors.

Monique Belier  

Dutch photographer Monique Belier (1971) graduated from the Photo Academy in Amsterdam in 2023. Her internationally acclaimed graduation project, a photo artist- book 'Where the spirit meets the bone', is available through bookshops such as Tipi Bookshop in Brussels, Le Bal in Paris and other stores in, among others, Milan, Lisbon and London. In addition, it is included in the photo book library in Salzburg and it was curated by esteemed institutions such as Huis Marseille and Foam in Amsterdam. In 2023, Monique was selected as a Fresh Eyes talent, which led to her participation in Haute Photography in Amsterdam. Furthermore, she was chosen for the OFF Bratislava festival to present her book. Her work garnered further praise and was recognised by Robin Titchener in the list of the best photo books of 2023. Monique’s work has been featured in various magazines and exhibited in the Netherlands and Zurich. She is currently invited by Palm Tree Workshops to attend a Masterclass by Raymond Meeks in September and, in May 2024, by invitation, she participated in the Masterclass Week of Origini Edizioni in Livorno, Italy. Monique is a member of Atelier Néerlandais in Paris and has been the curator of photo exhibitions at De Engelbewaarder in Amsterdam since October 2023.
