OVERVIEW DIGITISED WORKS

INSERT COIN HIGHWAY CAR

Hans Op de Beeck
The viewer drops a coin in the slot machine and an image of a small child in a kiddie car appears. The car’s movement tips the child back and forth. Instead of enjoying the ride, the child appears sullen and unhappy. (Source: www.hansopdebeeck.com)...

INTERLUDE

Bernard Gigounon
Little experiences of everyday, an acceleration of the yield of a copy machine, a tribute to Jean Renoir, a videogame, 24 image-seconds piled on top of each other and the results of an encounter of the children of the Brussels neighbourhood Marollen with the medium video....

IRA COHEN "CURFEW"

Hänzel & Gretzel
Curfew was originally created as a cinematic setting for a live performance with poet, artist, photographer and performer Ira Cohen (1935-2011) and Erich Sleichem. The silent film of over twenty minutes is an ode to Ira Cohen and reflects Cohen’s world and his worldview through the eyes of Daniel Mangeon (aka Hänzel & Gretzel)...

IMITATION DE JÉSUS-CHRIST (HOMMAGE À YVES SOMVILLE)

Jacques Lennep
In the seventies Jacques Lennep worked on his « Musée de l’homme», a series of exhibitions, performances and videos in which eight figures were shown over the course of time in an artistic context, according to a wayward conception of sociological art...

INKTPOT

Luc Deleu - Filip Francis - De nieuwe Coloristen
In the dunes of the Belgian seaside town of Koksijde a bunker from World War II is with great deal of sense for detail transformed into a giant inkpot. This early video work is a collaboration between the utopian architect Luc Deleu, painter Filip Francis and the group ‘de nieuwe coloristen’ (translated as ‘the new colorists’)...

INSERT COIN FOR LOVE

Hans Op de Beeck
The coin drops into the slot machine and a scene reminiscent of a peepshow appears. A woman rotates on a red velvet podium. She looks bored and refuses to perform. The work also exists as a single channel video projection. (Source: www.hansopdebeeck.com)...

IETS OP BACH

Sven Augustijnen
In ‘Iets op Bach’ (‘Something on Bach’), the performers of Les Ballets C. de la B., directed by Alain Platel, are having a party in their dance studio. Slowly it’s going out of control. The event is filmed through the windows of the dance studio, from the roof of the building on the other side of the street...

IN THE MEANWHILE...

Bernard Gigounon
"In the meanwhile..." is a slightly hysterical celebration of life with an appropriate soundtrack in a fairyland forest setting, rudely interrupted by a man who is looking for his personal harmony with nature in a most theatrical way....

IN GEFAHR UND GRÖSSTER NOT BRINGT DER MITTELWEG DEN TOD

Alexander Kluge
Frankfurt, 1974. It's Carnival time. Two women live independently in the same city. One is called Inge Maier and she is a prostitute. The other is Rita Mueller-Eisert and she is a DDR-spy who must report her officers about the life in the Federal Republic. While Inge is sleeping with the police vice president, Rita sees that the police forcibly evicts students from occupied buildings...

IMITATION DE JÉSUS-CHRIST, ETC.

INTERN CABINE

Jan De Cock
This work is part of the installation Vertigo or the area of free catalogues, a three-dimensional mise-en-scène consisting of videos and construction materials the artist created in the autumn of 1999 at Argos. Central in the installation there is the site of Waterloo and the monument with the lion, a symbol-laden place that refers to loss, defeat and death...

INSTRUCTION FOR USE

Edith Dekyndt
A silent animated drawing created out of manuals for consumption objects for public or private use. Dekyndt combines an inventory of daily instruction, but, in this way, the slide show questions our formatted consumeristic experience and faces us to the aesthetics of how-to included in ordinary packagings and their universal codified language....

IN BLOOD WE TRUST

Pablo Garcia Rubio - Alain De Clerck - Emmanuel Dundic
The video ‘In blood we trust’ records a project that consists of a performance, a sound installation and a video presentation, presented during the Venice Biennial. The performance took place during the opening of the exhibition and consisted of a small airplane that could be controlled from a distance, throwing out dollars over the heads of the audience...

INFORMATION SUR LA COULEUR

Jacques-Louis Nyst
In spite of its title, this video is previous to the outbreak of colour in the Nysts’ work. A black and white photograph of Danièle Nyst is followed by an image of the “real” Danièle Nyst knitting. The camera tracks the wool thread and then offers us a close-up of the wool ball just as we hear a loud and clear “Jaune” (Yellow)...

IMPROVISATION

Eric Pauwels
In ‘Improvisation’, Pauwels films Pierre Droulers improvising to the music of Thierry De Mey in a one-sequence shot. A dancer and a camera-man limited in space and time. Both improvise within the confines of this setting. An uninterrupted take. We hear the tones of an exciting staccato rhythm...
