My name is Danielle Huyghe, I'm 19 years old and I'm from Belgium. Before entering ArtEZ I studied for 6 years in a pre-education in Antwerp (De! Kunsthumaniora). I want to create my own body language as a maker. I'm researching how I can create movements with the idea of sculptures and uncomfortable positions. I want to research the limits of my body and am interested in new visions on art. I want to share my passion and creativity with other artists, which is why I would love to work interdisciplinary in the future.
