Kate Mcintosh : De-placed

Video Installation
Over one summer meeting Kate McIntosh and Eva Meyer-Keller came up with a game. Shifting through the city, from inside to out, they constructed small installations in the locations they found. They played a ping-pong of images between them - each action challenging the other to a reply. The result is a collection of short actions and unlikely installations - a constantly expanding inventory of the world, through mischievous re-placements of the things in it. The project is endless. There is a persistence and inquisitiveness about this catalogue of small crushings, traps, decorations, and repairs - there is an internal logic that can only be read as 'putting things in the wrong place' and yet which satisfies some curiosity, some desire, before passing quickly to the next. The rearrangements are subversive, cryptic, and at times mysterious relocations of banal materials in every-day environments. Each image is a fragment in a rolling, compiling world-view; a hands-on investigation of what-might-go-where, and what might happen when one 'thing' meets another.

This collaboration was the first stage of the FlashPoint project - a series of meetings in which Kate invites each time a different artist for a short collaboration.

Bernard Van Eeghem & Dolores Bouckaert receive research grant from the Flemish Government

Bernard delves deeper into Fernando Pessoa's Ode Marítima by researching how this epic poem can be translated into (moving) images. During her research, Dolores invites fellow artists to encounter her and props from previous pieces, guided by Martha Nussbaum's acclaimed work The Fragility of Goodness: Luck and Ethics in Greek Tragedy and Philosophy.
