Arno Synaeve (°1994, Ghent) lives and works in Munich. He is a visual artist, set designer and theatre maker.

 

His practice is build around a fascination for how an environment influences us, as well as what our impact is on our environment. The word 'landscape' is often referred too, although it's definition goes far beyond the genre in art history: it's a place that evokes both orientation and identification. It doesn't only play a crucial role in the physicality but also in the psychology of the person inhabiting them.

His work reflects a deep interest in art history, especially in the domains of visual art and opera. To him the art of the past is not something that lies behind us - it's part of an ongoing and fascinating dialogue. 

 

He currently studies at the Akademie der Bildenden Künste in Munich (DE) under professor Pia Fries. He gained a Master in Visual Arts at KASK Ghent (BE) and a Master in Theatre at the Toneelacademie Maastricht (NL). He is part of the artistic platform Raumteid, together with Steven Prengels, Wolf Govaerts and Sofie Crabbé.
