Eliane Esther Bots (1986, Amsterdam, The Netherlands) graduated art academy Utrecht (HKU) and post-graduate trajectory 'Document and Contemporary art' at European school of visual art (France). She makes short films/videos, which balance between film, documentary and visual art. Visually she stays close to reality and at the same time she takes the freedom, during filming and editing, to change and adjust the situation, setting and storyline. With her work she tells hidden, unexpected and everyday life stories of people and places. She shows the visual cinematic beauty within reality and the daily life surrounding us. Besides her work as an artist she is a teacher in Art Academy Utrecht and works as a co-curator for the NGO Satellietgroep.
