SOMETHING NEVER THOUGHT YOU'D BE PART OF

2010

Something never...

This performance was made in the staircase of the apartment building where I live. It was part of a collaboration with the artist Loek Grootjans and Sandberg Institute where I studied at that time. With a simple photo camera I recorded myself in the staircase as a set and I used the environment in a different than usual way.

This staircase is mainly used by the inhabitants of the block in the morning when they go to work or in the afternoon when they return home. Mostly young single people live here. In the meantime, during the day, the space is unused and empty. So basically the whole space is available for moving in and out of the house twice a day. My interest goes out to the function and use of buildings and alternative use of these particular spaces.

I am always looking for new opportuities when it comes to make art or using new spaces for this purpose. This is one of the reasons why, after recording this video, I started to share its link on Facebook walls of museums and other art institutions. Questioning the place for art and to meet different audiences.

The list below shows art institute's or art related initiatives where I shared a link to the video.
