What Remains of a Rembrandt Torn Into Four Equal Pieces and Flushed Down the Toilet - Simone Basani

This performance reveals different aspects of the museum space as a whole and brings to light hidden stories and unexpected connections. At the same time, the performers keep track of a shared event - the act and actions of the visit - and make spectators aware of their own presence and the choices made in the exhibition space.

10.00 - 12.30h & 14.00 - 16.30h

Stilleven c Charlotte Bouckaert

Stillevens - Charlotte Bouckaert

By depicting the banal, Charlotte Bouckaert wishes to pay homage to the everyday objects that surround us. No matter how average or insignificant an object might seem, the wheels of the imagination start to turn when that object is used in playful manner. During 'Mind the Artist', Charlotte Bouckaert wants to explore the museum as an open workshop. She takes her workbench into a room full of 17th century still-life paintings. She allows herself to be inspired by these paintings and transforms them in different ways, until they truly begin to live.

Benjamin Vandewalle Inter face c Stanislav Dobak kopie

Inter-face - Benjamin Vandewalle

With Inter-face, Benjamin Vandewalle creates a mini-theatre in which he is both actor and spectator. By using an interplay of lights, the theatre-maker presents us with a mirror in which to become aware of our 'self'. This installation makes it possible to look at the other as though he or she were you and to look at yourself as though you were the other.
