b. 1984 in Borgerhout, Belgium; lives and works in London.
 
Wouter Van der Hallen holds an MFA from KASK School of Arts Ghent and completed the Visual Research program at St Lucas-Institute Antwerp. He's been involved in a number of artist-run spaces (as founder and co-director of REIS, co-initiator of Time To Meet, etc.) and together with Oscar Hugal he worked as a resident artist at the Kulturbunker Residency in Frankfurt am Main. In recent years artistic collaborations have increasingly shaped his practice. He's one half of Martin & Robin Novak-Smith, a proto-heteronym for an ongoing collaboration with artist Sophie Anson, and with writer Koen Sels he founded the fictional hardcore-punk band NO POETRY, split up and reformed as RHINE.
