Private Public Life, The Blue Castle

Dolores Bouckaert

25€ + Postage

In 2013 Dolores Bouckaert realized for CC Hasselt her most recent project in which visual art, video and slide projection play an important role.

Read more

In this project the investigation into the personal boundary between private and public in all its aspects is shown. In THE BLUE CASTLE, a monumental slide projection in which 60 snapshots of Bouckaert - who had to stay for a long time in her bedroom - can be seen in loop. This is how Bouckaert herself develops as an intriguing narrative. In the publication which is perceived as an artist edition (100 copies) you see a selection of these images and drawings.

This particular book was made possible by the support of CC Hasselt and Margarita Production.
The exhibition was also shown at Gallery Jan Dhaese in Ghent.

MONIQUE

Pull the strings. There is work to be done.
Touch the smooth patina of the equipment.
Find a safe part and use it as an anchor.
Put one hand on top of an arm near the shoulder and fold the arm loosely across the front toward the other armpit.
Lay it out on a flat surface.
Carefully drag the tissue across the lens.
Keep it tight. Bring the short end up vertically. Insert it through the front loop you just created, running along the top of the main line and pull to tighten.
Sew on the buttons.
Move it over to the left, then cover its hammers in leather.
Wash inside out.
Hang it in a shady place, and leave it to dry.
Fold it gently, and hide it away.
You may leave now. Try faking it.
With love and care,

Monique

IT, thingly variations in space

Mokum vzw & a.pass/a.rc

8 € + postage (ENG)

This book explores the position of the object in contemporary performance.

Read more

What happens when the object is no longer dealt with as a reference point in the multi-layered language of theatre? What if the object takes centre stage, or even better, becomes the stage itself? Who is the spectator the moment you become aware of IT staring back at you?
Looking at the object as an autonomous actor in today's performance practice, IT opens up a philosophical, critical and playful field of references. Food for thought…
The texts and images in this book refer to the works of performance makers Lilia Mestre, Joanna Bailie & Christoph Ragg, Laurent Liefooghe and Sanja Mitrovic. This publication contains texts by André Lepecki, Elke Van Campenhout, Christophe Van Gerrewey and Nele Wynants.
