JAMES ENSOR IN OOSTENDE CA 1920

Guillaume Bijl
The highly individual and visionary work of James Ensor (1860-1949), familiar for its masquerades, carnival scenes and grotesque caricatures, is not easily categorized under any modern genre.

JAMES LEE BYARS: WORLD QUESTION CENTER

Jef Cornelis
The work of the American artist James Lee Byars (1932-1997) resists any strict definition or categorisation. He was greatly influenced by his many travels, as well as by for example Zen philosophy and Noh theatre, which he discovered during the years he spent in Japan. While his oeuvre relates to conceptual, minimal and performance art, it is not limited to any of these genres...

J'AI LA TÊTE QUI TOURNE

Jacques-Louis Nyst - Danièle Nyst
The heads of a video recorder are turning; the earth is turning. The night succeeds the day. Thought and images pass by; the artist is feeling dizzy.

Their intention is to move the world and the night into a little grey corner...

JOUR DE FÊTE

Bernard Gigounon
In this video Gigounon once again ventures on the broad footpath between reality and imagination. Science-fiction worlds are all around us, the only thing we have to do is allow our imagination to run freely. Gigounon backs us up with the assistance of a couple of simple video effects, so we can let go of the trivialities of reality, even for an instant...

JE SUIS CONTENT

Bernard Mulliez
In different short sequences, a man talks directly in the camera about human management that organises its discourse towards success, dictates values, roles and objectives reuniting individuals in a group. Leadership is recognised as a more appropriate means to satisfy the longings of a group than allowing its individual members to provide for their own needs themselves...
