My name is Casper Fitzhue and on the 3rd of February, 2020, I died, in the middle of my shift at an indoor bio market, in Bruxelles. Shortly after, I was diagnosed with PTSD. I then became critical of the east/ west divide in approaching disease and disorder and of the system which creates both. Luckily, I had already spent some years trialing different methods of therapy, self-healing, and expanding consciousness, and so, in my afterlife, these help with my ease, order, research, and methodology. My meditation practice of 8 years has developed my voice, storytelling, and personal politics. Most recently, I learned about dreams from the leader of the Sápara people of Ecuador and schizo-shamanic ways of re-thinking a decolonial world from NOMASMETAFORAS. I once studied Graphic & Visual Communication in England and Photography in Antwerp.
In my current practice, I pay attention to interests and relationships. I want to be a bridge, and you cannot be a bridge if you’re not in-between places. I’m particularly interested in systems of exclusion and gatekeeping and, conversely, ways of connecting seemingly unrelated areas to open new doors and stimulate thought.
Favorite topics? Technology, sensuality, and spi-ritual practices.
I drink green tea and collect stories of people who help people.
Casper Fitzhue will be in residence at Can Serrat during the months of May – June 2022.
