Burying film experiments in Dakar

The Troubled Archives collective from Belgium was selected to the Dakar Biennal 2022 _ IN the official selection exhibited at Ancien Palais de Justice.. As a preparation to the NOISY IMAGES installation, we went to bury negative films in the garden of IFAN, in order to have the earth collaborate on the work. Thank you, all the buriers.

Vitrine#5 : Deconstructing by nature (entrance installation Köln)

In preparation of the work Vitrine#5 : Deconstructing by nature, Loes and I went out into the sun to get some Rhein wasser that will help us deconstruct some colonial images. The images I re-filmed and developed on 16mm film for this work are 19th Century photographs from the Rautenstrauch-Joest museum archive that illustrate the unequal power relations between colonizers and colonized.

The work itself is on display at the Rautenstrauch-Joest Museum in Köln, in Blickpunkt, until July 21st 2019.

Summarizing an image database into a single file, its image and its sound: Constant

Yesterday, the 25th floor of WTC, where I have my workshop next to Constant’s, was full of joy. The neighbors were having a TECHNO-GALACTIC WALK_IN CLINIC. One could walk in with all kinds of software and file-related problems. You were then taken into the clinic. Into file therapy. read more…
