Val Macé

Val Macé was born in Caen in 1986, and his work combines a variety of techniques and media: sculpture, electronics, code, DIY acrobatics, sewing, drawing and mechanical music, most of which he uses to create moments, objects or spaces for live performance.

Either as a musician with groups such as PLOYBOY, One Bit Direction Direction, Fatal Coincoin or solo with his set of DIY instruments.

Or by creating exotic scenographic objects for theatres such as the Nimis group or the Compagnie Gare Centrale.

Or by producing his own street performance projects as part of the Boîte à Clous collective, including Dragobus, Carrousel Shuriken, Robert la Licorne and, more recently, CHANTIER!

His work is rarely static. There's often something at play between the absurdity of his productions and the technical complexity they involve.

Val lives and works in Brussels.
