Olivier Delebecque (FR,1981) is based in Amsterdam. He studied Art History (Tours), graduated from the documentary department at cinema school ESEC (Paris) and the Master of Film at the Film Academy Amsterdam (2016). He is inspired by the concept of the Autonomy of Migration and engaged in contemporary migrations policy issues. He navigates between visual art, documentary film making and sailing. Since a few years he explores the subversive potential of sailing navigation which he sees as a creative practice. Olivier produces socially engaged art that involves people and communities in debate, collaboration or social interaction. It is based not on spectatorship but on participation and long-term relationship that values as much the process of a work than the finished product.
At the moment he is developing the game design of a navigation video game with the support of the StimuleringFonds and a VR video work in collaboration with the Gemeente Beverwijk.
He is also the co-founder with Suzanne Bernhardt of the Foundation Idées Clandestines. This foundation has for ambition to support and develop artist’s talent with a special focus on interdisciplinary public space works with local community.
