    Dirk Vander Eecken

    At a first viewing of Dirk Vander Eecken's recent work, I was peripherally reminded of the edition "Erster Blick" (2000) of the German artist Gerhard Richter. This simple appropriation of a page from the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung shows a photo with a text fragment of the first image of the inside of an atom, made by scientists at the University of Augsburg. It is an edition in which Gerhard Richter expresses his fascination for what underlies the material world, or what it is made up of. Concrete reality is tipped over through a microscopic examination that creates a mysterious image which evades all human control. Gerhard Richter also painted, after an illness, snow landscapes that conjure up a similar fascination with a landscape that exists but is temporarily covered with a layer of white snow. In a similar way, the oeuvre of Dirk Vander Eecken is an attempt at creating a continuum, an attempted contemplation of "realities" that directly opposes the routinous perception of the overpressurised rustling reality that surrounds us.

    Het Huis Huilt, Alice Joseph

    Waarom huilt het huis?





    Er wonen 9 insecten waarvan 3 insecten huilen. Elk voor hun eigen reden.



    Omdat de 3 insecten niet kunnen stoppen met huilen loopt het huis onder water: Het huis huilt en de andere insecten dreigen te verdrinken.



    Hoe kan je deze insecten helpen te ontsnappen? "Het huis huilt" is een theatervoorstelling voor kinderen die vertrekt van het gelijknamige kunstboek van Michelle Adriaense, uitgegeven door Medium. Het boek is te koop na de voorstelling (laatste voorstelling 02/06/2012 in de Kopergietery Gent).

    Spectres, Sven Augustijnen



    If the 'communist infiltration of Africa' was a spectre often used tojustify the elimination of Patrice Lumumba, The assasination of the Congo's—indeed, Africa's—first democratically elected Prime Minister on 17 January 1961 created a spectre of it's own. Sir Jaques Brassinne de La Buissière, then a young Belgian functionary, was in Elisabethville on that fateful day. He has written several books on the subject, and spent more than thirty years trying to bring to light 'what really happened'. This supplement to Sven Augustijnen's film Spectres offers another look at the film's main character, who is at once guide, narrator, and symbol of a past that continues to cast its shadow on the present.

    ‘Spectres’ was shown at Sven Augustijnen's solo exhibition at Wiels in Brussels, from May 8 to July 31, 2011.

    Two bilingual editions: English/French and Dutch/French.
