Jonathan De Maeyer (°1994) works and lives in Ghent. In 2019 he obtained a master's degree in Fine Arts - Photography at LUCA School Of Arts Ghent under the guidance of Marc De Blieck.

In different capacities, he explores his relationship with the landscape. He tries to understand the landscape by becoming a part of it, by observing and documenting it from the inside. In his work, he tries to reinterpret the landscape and give the viewer access to an alternative, personal perception.

Since graduating, his work has been shown in exhibitions at Netwerk (Aalst), MuZee (Ostend), FoMu (Antwerp), Kunsthal (Ghent) and Bpart (Berlin), among others.

In 2020, he participated in the group exhibition Currents#7 at Z33 (Hasselt), curated by Melanie Deboutte and Louis-Philippe Van Eeckhoutte.

Since 2021, he has been conducting artistic research on different forms of seasonality and coexistence in the European countryside with the collective "Seasonal Neighbours. The work was presented in 2022 in the exhibition 'Our Invisible Hands' at Z33 (Hasselt). A publication of this research will be published by Onomatopee (Eindhoven) in April 2024. He represented his work and the collective in Vevey (Switzerland) at the Foodculture Days Art Biennale and at the Village Makers Festival in Wortel organized by Ar-Tur.

This was followed by several exhibitions and collaborations. Among others, he realized the short film "Memory of a Brick Clamp" together with Ciel Grommen and Maximiliaan Royakkers that was part of the exhibition "Au Charbon" (CID, Mons) and "Reparative Research" (De Carré, LUCA School of Arts Ghent).
