Residencey Part III: Fake Heads & Escape Plans

From the 29th of october to the 6th of November > workshop with Atelier Pica Pica & Julien Meert.

Au départ, c’est un banal email de Julien qui retient leur attention. Il y partage l’image des mannequins fabriqués par les 4 évadés d’Alcatraz pour duper leurs gardiens, et tenter la traversée du bras de mer qui les séparait de la liberté.
Ainsi, germe l’idée pour le workshop de s’évader ensemble de leurs univers artistiques respectifs, en quête de terres inconnues.
Pour eux, cela signifie modeler leurs autoportraits et peindre des marines. Un défi d’une semaine, au bout de laquelle, ils aboutissent à des propositions nouvelles, sans être vraiment éloignées de leurs esthétiques habituelles. L’exercice, dans ce cas-ci, démontre que le changement de contexte n’a pas altéré l’identité du travail.

Au terme de ce workshop, ils ont réussi à créer l’image de leur double. Celui qui, enfermé dans l’inconscient, rêve de nouveau horizons.

Our New Neighbourhood Is A Stranger

The 12th of October, we present the publications created during this week of workshop in the gallery.
 
Boris, Manuel and Jérôme, From Atelier Pica Pica and their guests of the week, E.B. Itso, Magnus Vind and Julien Couic, each produced their own book and participated at a common publication. The seven zines are editions of 50 each.
 
 The drawings and photographs are printed with a RISO machine, an ancient Japanese printer released in 1986.
 
 These micro editions will mainly tell the stories, through photography, of the paths usually less travelled. Those heirs of Rimbaud are inexorably attracted towards the rough civilization in the landscapes. Sometimes they leave an artistic track, revealing the hidden beauty of the place. It’s also a way to get in touch with these environments, feel its underlying forces. It’s an existential quest made by travel and sharing.

Like E.B. Itso wrote on an abandoned facade in Norway: "It's not down on any map, true places never are".
