Céline Gillain

Drama - BEL

Céline Gillain is an artist and pop musician from Liège who lives and works in Brussels. Her work is a hybrid mix of feminist sci-fi, pitch-black humour and storytelling. In December 2018 her debut record ‘Bad Woman’ was released on Paris’s Drama label. Often dark, sometimes danceable, always exploratory and – in Gillain’s own words – like the music of ‘a disillusioned pop diva desperately trying to make a comeback’. The result is undoubtedly pop, albeit of the contrary, alienating variety. At the same time, she has a remarkably elegant way of broaching societal topics through her parallel universe.
