↓ 6 TASSES - 2015 - B

  • An installation/projection that has been created for the opening exhibition of “Helder Postiga” in Saint-Gilles, Brussels on the 4th of June 2015.
    The work has been made in obedience of the rules and restrictions that were given to the participating artists. One of the principal restrictions was that no external objects could be brought in to the space for the realisation of any work. You see a set of six coffee cups in their original packaging, with the fluorescent price tag of the store at which they were bought, ‘Bab Marrakesh”. The cups are being held up with two hands during 5 minutes, in front of a background which shows a vertically striped pattern which is also held up manually, although this is not directly visible in the video. The reflection of the window through which the video was shot shows a mirrored text, which reads ‘Sigmar Polke’. The cups were not brought inside of the space, neither was professional video equipment, the video was filmed with a smartphone. A wooden beam, a small block and a wood clamp were used to mount the projector. The video was shown on a window between two rooms inside of the space.

    The only resting documentation of the installed work is the blown up screen capture of a video shot on the opening night, shown above. The video itself, without the installation built along with it can be watched below.

    6 tasses, video projection, 5 minutes, looped in the original installation.


  • installation, cupboard, coffee cups, bar chairs

↓ NEPUTAMIX 03 - 2015 - B

↓ 69 - 2015 - A

  • for 69, group exhibition, Everaertstraat 69, Antwerp - in collaboration with Jeroen P. Visser

↓ ALIAS - 2014 - B

  • for Paradise Lost, group exhibition, curated by Damien & The Love Guru, Quincaillerie Vander Eycken, Brussels
  • Alias, 2014
    wood, mixed materials
    two objects, both 226 x 86 x 6 cm

    The work consists of two doors.

    One which has been taken out of its original context; the artist’s studio, not installed, but simply leant against the wall of the exhibition space.

    A gradual distance from the objects function is displayed.

    The second, hingeless frame is the mere skeleton of the first construct, becoming an icon for any door, reduced to its most simple form. In the presentation of the two objects, one standing aside the other, a situational, functional and temporal shift is evoked. An ambivalence between utilitarian­ and art object is created. Different locations open up to the observer: the original location of the door, the present exhibition site and the new perception it holds and finally an imaginary space behind or in front of the door, which is inherent to any door, given its actual purpose.
