Geeraard Duivelsteen, Geraard de duivelstraat 1, Gent
The garden of Castle Geeraard the Duivelsteen is the setting for the 4th edition of Yart; contemporary installations in the (semi-) public space.
During six months this famous and notorious garden functions as a work- and exhibition platform for six selected young artists from home and abroad.
Every month another artist will use the garden and its ambivalent context to present a new work.
Sofia Caesar (°1987) works primarily with videos, performances, sculptures, and installations. In her work the body in motion is a central theme. Together with the public she engages herself in seeing how the structures that act on us, such as architecture, language, or the camera, can be played with. Her work shows how bodies can escape the forces that control them, creating a language of their own.
