OVERVIEW DIGITISED WORKS

MOVING OUT

Geoffroy De Volder
‘Moving out’ is a contradictory film about altering loves. Constructed as an audio-visual compilation in which random indications of childhood, sexuality and passion are brought together as a broken nuptial, this film has an overwhelming intensity that relives the alienation and exposure throughout the story of a physical confrontation that threatens us and tears us apart...

MAQUILLAGE DE YVES SOMVILLE

Jacques Lennep
Video, apart from photography and holography, was but one of the media Lennep made use of during the 1970s, as he was adding on to his ‘museum of men’.

MARTIN MARGIELA HERFST/WINTER 97/98

Gorik Lindemans
Martin Margiela’s fashion shows have always been very ‘anarchistic’: never taking place on the official catwalks, but somewhere in Paris; very post-punk with candles, red wine and very loud, badly mixed music. The images taken of these shows were very alike, very grunge...

MR. CRUSTACROUS

Hänzel & Gretzel
A twenty-seconds manipulated clip by Hänzel & Gretzel. Accompanied by noisy breaks, in the opening shot, the artist depicts the hands of the mysterious man who is eating a lobster, the second shot is a zoom out where the presumed man turns to be have a lobster head on an human body.

MYRTLE BEACH

Jacques-Louis Nyst
An early film by Nyst anticipating the work he would make years later: poetical ambience pieces, built around congealed memories, associations arousing from the imaginary and undermining the real.
