Wezile Harmans is a visual art practitioner whose interdisciplinary practice encompasses performance, video, installation, and mixed-media artworks as a tool for social change. His work confronts prejudices and advocates against social inequality, creating a platform for critical self-reflexivity within unwelcoming spaces. Harmans' work is influenced by how things have come to existence, as well as motivations behind certain movements, reactions, human behaviors and their symbolic meaning. In his practice, he uses the theory of defamiliarization as an alternative way to create further conversations.
