by Anyuta Wiazemsky Snauwaert and Kim Snauwaert
Without being romantically involved, Kim married Anyuta in 2018, who was at the time in need of a Belgian residence permit. Originating from Russia, she didn’t want to return and marriage seemed the only option. Kim, who was a co-student at art school at the time, wanted to help out.
Kim Snauwaert (1986, Belgium) is a theater academic, performer and transdisciplinary artist. She also played the lead role in Anke Blondé’s debut, The Best of Dorien B.

Her own work is situated at the intersection between the personal, the political and ethics, and consists of visual installations, video work and performative interventions.
