Alice Smeets, an artistic photographer and filmmaker from Belgium who has
traveled extensively to Haiti in the last 8 years.
She met Atis Rezistans during their second “Ghetto Biennale” exhibition while
she was exploring the fascinating lives of the Haitian citizens.
She became friends with some of the artists and we have stayed in touch ever since.
Every two years, Atis Rezistans invite Western and non-Western artists to their home
to create art together. The resulting exhibition is called “Ghetto Biennale”.
The idea is to depict a more creative aspect of the Haitian reality, in order to
counterbalance the current, predominantly negative portrayal of the country.
