SO HAPPY

Joëlle de La Casinière - Michel Bonnemaison
Joëlle de la Casinière herself, barefoot against an abandoned and ravaged metropolitan background, promotes her book ’Absolument nécessaire’ (‘An Emergency Book’) during an interview/happening with a broadcast delay. “Nothing is true, everything is permitted”. In the end the books are covered in graffiti like subway carriages....

DÉLIRIUM VIDÉO 7

Jacques Lennep
Part seven in this series of short sketches, consists mainly of performances the artist gave in Belgium and abroad. Paying homage to amongst others Marcel Broodthaers and Belgian surrealists, we see the artist functioning as a ironic priest, giving away for free his artwork to the audience after he cut it into pieces, or making a new absurd installation in his studio based on found footage...

DETERMINATION (4)

Hans Op de Beeck
This video image is projected life-size on a wall. It’s an eight-minute, real-time recording, appearing on a white surface, then disappearing and repeating itself without end; very important to realise: this is not a loop. We are confronted heads on with a family (a man, a woman, 2 little children) running towards us, but on the spot, without actually moving closer...

21 JULI

Axel Claes
Old Super8 images of the Belgian National Holiday celebrations in Brussels were edited by Axel Claes into a short snapshot. The short, volatile fragments give an impression of an occupied city, just when the parade, headed by king Baudouin/ Boudewijn, runs over the inner city, raising looks of awe and amazement with its military display...

LIEFSTE

Karen Vanderborght
Collection of found fragments of love letters intertwined with repetitive series of super-8 images....

CORREDOR

Emilio López-Menchero
Playing with the Spanish homonym of the words corridor and runner, Emilio López-Menchero runs till he loses his breath on the never ending corridors of an former East-Berlin communist building. Like, other early works by López-Menchero, the video recordings maps 1:1 the duration of the action and the space where the action takes place....

VIDÉO RELATIONNELLE (1973 - 1974): DIALOGUE AVEC UNE CAMÉRA

Jacques Lennep
A mixture between a camera study and a performance wherein the artist communicates with the camera in sign language using flags to communicate his message....

AND [BACK

Peter Downsbrough
AND [BACK ‘plays’ a complex ‘game’ with the words AND and BACK, where the word BACK sometimes functions as indicator, sometimes as trigger, sometimes as a comment on what is happening on-screen...

DEUX OISEAUX CHANTENT

Jacques-Louis Nyst
Two characters wonder about birdsong. One of them affirms that a page of text lies at the origin. The dialogue that ensues is evocative of a series of images of familiar objects and of the snowed over countryside of Presseux Village. The influence of the winter landscape orients the conversation towards the idea of whiteness and silence. The action slows down...

SECOND-HAND EXPERIENCE 02

Edith Dekyndt
The 'Second hand experiences' are an uncompleted series of film installations, reinterpreting movements from childhood. In 'Second-hand experiences 02', Dekyndt handles an embroidery floss and builds a square loop which she keeps on shaping and reshaping with her hands...

Y,X

Shelbatra Jashari
Shelbatra Jashari’s films are grounded in experimental films of the 1960s and ’70s, fused with contemporary concerns, both personal and social. Jashari creates fragmented, grainy, dreamy visual sequences that unfold randomly. ‘Y,X’ is a personal travelogue which leads through the Balkans to northern France...

MUSEUM VOOR KAPOTTE KUNST

Luc Deleu
Being an artist-architect, Deleu has always been sensitive to the recycling of buildings and the use of ‘ready-mades’. In ‘Museum voor kapotte kunst’ (‘Museum for Broken Art’) he records the outside and inside of an abandoned, declined industrial building from various angles. The building is an object, a ready-made that the viewer can modify as he or she likes...

L'AVENTURE EXTRAVAGANTE D'UN POULET

Jacques Lennep
Lennep goes to a huge chicken farm to fetch a chicken. He paints the chicken with red and black paint, then puts it in a pot. In the end he releases the animal in the woods. ...

VISUALAX

Axel Claes
A video-critique on the concept of exploring the world as being ‘Im Wunderkabinet der Kulturen’. This enchantment made of separations and exotisms is present in many actual urban narratives and alternative cultural work pieces. It is deeply rooted in 19th century Western concepts on the other. Every village slowly slides into the archipelago of cultures...

VIDÉO À LA CHAÎNE II - RÉPÉRAGE CAMBRIOLE

Michel Bonnemaison - Joëlle de La Casinière - Jacques Lederlin - Enrique Ahriman

SOUND WATCH

Rik De Boe
