Luca Soudant is an independent curator, critical thinker, writer, artistic researcher, teacher and DJ (Them Fatale) based in The Netherlands. They graduated from Cultural Analysis (research master) at the University of Amsterdam and the department of Critical Studies at the Sandberg Institute. They are curating Qtopia Queer Arts Festival Nijmegen and teach critical theory in various (art) institutions, art academies and self-organised spaces.
In their autonomous artistic practice, Luca investigates the (sonic) materialisation of power in everyday spaces. They work with the tactility of sound. Luca aims to show the physicality, affectivity, violence, omnipresence and intensity of 'that which we got used to' through working with sound vibrations as their primary material. They investigate the intrusive spatial qualities of low-frequency sound waves and relate this to (oppressive realities of) everyday power structures. As part of their process, repetition is also an essential element in processes of healing and ways of queer world making.
