Lore Langendries (°1988), doctor in the Arts since 2015, is an artistic maker active in the field of contemporary jewellery and object design based in Hasselt, Belgium. In 2010 she received her Master’s degree in Arts from the MAD-faculty (Media, Arts and Design Faculty) in Hasselt. From 2011 until 2015 she did a PhD in Arts at the KU Leuven, the University of Hasselt and the MAD-Faculty of Hasselt.
Her research interests include the interaction between manual and mechanical, balancing between the unique and the serial object with a particular focus on the tactile and physical aspects of design, the behaviour and qualities of materials, digital technology and Lore’s own subjective and intuitive role as a creator. Central to her work is the circle as a pure geometrical form showing the essence and beauty of various materials in their most elementary form. In a playful experimental approach, materials are used as active agents in the design and making process, handling the material as subject and matter, resulting in wearable and un-wearable objects, manoeuvring freely in-between disciplines.
