Introduction

Aline Bouvy’s multidisciplinary practice is a way of expressing her refusal to compromise and adapt to systems in our society which aim to regulate our longing, conforming it to the norms and values which shape that same society. Bouvy questions and denounces how the images we have of ourselves and of humanity are determined by this morality. Generally speaking, she looks at how we handle contemporary cultural production and takes a stand against norms and values society imposes upon us. Because of this, she is attracted to the non-conventional — not to fetishize elements from the margins of society, but from a wish to normalize what is considered out-of-bounds, and thereby to adjust the prevailing morality.
