ERKI DE VRIES - The Book Project
The Book project is a continuous project by visual artists Erki De vries and Pieter Huybrechts in which they explore our experi- ences of space. Using photos, video and sculptural elements, they create a construction for each individual space that feels both familiar and alienating at the same time. Each spatial installation will also be turned into a book that aims to grasp the complexity of a certain space on paper.
At M, De vries and Huybrechts present an installation made specifically for room 18, a com- pact sculpture that clusters the space’s characteristics and unfolds as visitors walk around it.
SARAH & CHARLES - PROPS FOR DRAMA: SUSPENSION OF DISBELIEF / 2013
in a colourful musical film, set against a surreal background, typical of the genre, we follow a girl through the different chap- ters of her life; from a young child, towards an adolescent woman. in a staged world she enticingly sings about her own state of mind. The enchantment is brutally interrupted when the set and the camera crew unexpectedly become visible. The film draws the viewer into a story within a story, lead on by an exhilarating soundtrack, through a world filled with impossible events.
