Work in progress

The picture was taken during a ‘100% free space’ residency at Het Huys, where I took the time to organise and somehow schedule all current projects on a timeline.

As an independant artist, I’m always developping several projects at a time because you never know wich one is going to get picked up, so here’s some of those projects in the making:

The Survival Social Club

The Survival Social Club is an artistic participative project that gathers people around the idea of how to survive an impending climate apocalypse and how does that help us to create a better society today. It continues on the path I layed out earlier with ‘the extinction survival archive #1’ and #2 taking it to a next level of ‘urban prepping’. Take a closer look at the concept

Fictive Archives Investigations

The Fictive Archives Investigations group is a collective of 17 international artists/researchers that were gathered together by Claire Ducène in 2020. We started online through numerous zoom meetings to present our work to each other and concoct a group exhibition that is scheduled from January 25th to March 24th at ISELP. For the exhibition, I will present a new work based on the archive material I received from Julian Walker, one of the members, who had a grandfather that suffered a gas attack during WWI near Ploegsteert. Next to that I will be presenting a lecture performance about Molly English

There Here Now

An audiovisual performance with Sigrid Keunen. We worked together for a first time at Tristero and are now looking out for further opportunities to develop the performance. There’s quite a few projects in the making collaborating with Sigrid, under our common moniker ‘The SS Daydream’. There’s ‘Mr. Breath’, a contemporary opera with a DJ and new creations of H.C. Andersen’s ‘The Nightingale’ and ‘Thumbelina’.
