THE LADDER 2 (ALONE)

Messieurs Delmotte
Like in a scene out of a surrealist painting, a lonely ladder is standing in a park and seems to be reaching for the sky. But this illusion is shattered when the ladder drops to the ground. This work is part of the series Facts and Gestures Vol. 2...

BATTLES OF TROY

Krassimir Terziev
“Battles of Troy” is a study on the internal economy of contemporary globalized cinema production, seen through the eyes of the lowest unit in the production hierarchy - the extras. The focus of the study is the making of the Warner Bross Motion Picture “Troy” (2004). Starting in 2003 with a budget of 185 000 000 USD, Troy is one of the most expensive productions ever made...

MOVING STORIES

Nicolas Provost
Nicolas Provost plays once more with the grammar and the codes of (Hollywood) cinema. With a limited number of images, an absorbing soundtrack and a minimal story line, the artist tries to stimulate the viewers’ imagination to the maximum. Moving Stories strings together some four fragments of flying passenger airplanes. Gleaming in the sunlight, they glide high above the clouds...

Messieurs Delmotte
A short video-performance where we see Monsieur Delmotte in a city garden, lifting up a dog tenderly in his arms and looking up in an enigmatic way towards the sky. This work is part of the series Unidentified Emoticon...

STAGING SILENCE (1)

Hans Op de Beeck
After experiencing many similar public places, the artist found that they collectively lingered in his memory as abstracted, archetypal spaces. These formed the starting point of ’Staging Silence’, an ambiguous piece featuring an eclectix mix of ridiculous and serious images, the concrete and fantasy...

THE DYNAMITE SHOW

Koen Theys
Similarly to most of Koen Theys’ work, ’The Dynamite Show’ also shows a fascination with contemporary iconography. This video was built from video images of various explosions, developed by several American companies, who specialize in special effects for Hollywood films...

THE JOYCEAN SOCIETY

Dora García
A group of people have been reading a book together for thirty years. They have been reading it again and again, with each journey from the first to the last page taking eleven years. Once they reach the last word, a very enigmatic "the," they begin again with the first word, "riverrun." The text appears inexhaustible, its interpretation endless, the inconclusive nature of the reading exciting...

BEFORE THE RAIN (A VILLAGE)

Hans Op de Beeck
On the occasion of the festival Europalia.India and the exhibition Indomania (Bozar, Brussels, September 2013–January 2014) Hans Op de Beeck travelled to the historically important religious centre of Hampi (Karnataka) to make a new video...

BERLAYMONT DREAMING

Justin Bennett
The Berlaymont building, seat of the European Commission, is a symbolic centre for the European quarter of Brussels as well as for Europe itself. Formally interesting is the fact that the original modernist architecture has been renovated and forseen with a new ‘skin’ or rather an armour plating, changing the outward appearance while preserving the inner form...
