Some news about the current activities of some BD artists plus an important teaser at the end.

Dominique Leroy at La Méridienne, Lunéville

Dominique Leroy is showing his poetic sonic installation Jardin nô at Theatre La Méridienne in Lunéville (near Nancy). First shown at the Galerie RDV in Nantes this installation refers to the traditional Japanese theatre. This kinetic garden is composed of interlacing vegetals and small mechanics on recycled hard disks that rub, scratch and hit to create a sound that reminds of insects. This sculpture is activated by a series of invisible interactions based on phenomena related to vibrations, acoustics and interconnections.

All elements of the exhibition are related and form a complex system – composed of conducting materials, sound flows and resonators. A microphone at the entrance of the gallery captures the sounds from the street which become a real activator of the sound installation.

Theatre La Méridienne

From 23 September to 3 November 2017

AnneMarie Maes at Tendencies #2, Bozar Brussels

AnneMarie Maes is currently taking part in several exhibitions. Her PH3 – Future Archeology installation is featured in the Tendencies #2 exhibition as part of the Bozar Electronic Arts Festival until 30 September.

The exhibition, which shows the work of six female artists, aims to place emphasis on works which question scientific and technological innovations as much as they incorporate them. It wants to open up the field of reflection relating to these links and highlight structural analogies between the creators of distinct and complementary fields.

This edition is organised in partnership with NOVA XX with Stéphanie Pécourt as curator – an international competition dedicated to technological, scientific and artistic innovation amongst women in the age of the Fourth industrial revolution – instigated by the Halles Saint-Géry/Brussels.

Bozar, Foyers
Rue Ravensteinstraat 23
1000 Brussels
Until 30 September 2017
Free entrance on Tue – Sun, 10 am – 6 pm / Thu, 10 am – 9 pm, closed on Monday

In the context of the exhibition URBANisM, which temporarily redefines the parking lot, Nathalie HUNTER investigates what grows in the cracks of the pavement. Worried about the disconnect with nature in general and in urban space specifically HUNTER fights tirelessly for a creative reconnection.

Next to each installation of the project she looks for plants that grow between the cracks. QR-codes inform you about the interaction of the plants with your body (herbalism) and the soil (phytoremediation). Then, plants will be used to make paintings. Ancient dye techniques will meet encaustic paint to reveal a whole new, completely ecological way of painting. The results of this very experimental journey will be shown during the finissage on August 30.

URBANisM opens this Friday 26 June and runs until 30 August in Mechelen, Belgium. Find more information (mainly in Dutch) on their website and Facebook-page.

Urban Action Clinic

Nathalie HUNTER gives a guided talk during the opening of Urban Action Clinic Garden at Vooruit, Ghent on Saturday 6 June at 2pm. Hunter will discuss plants that are so called bioremediators and will explain their abilities of degrading a variety of polluting contaminates from the soil and ways to detox your body.

More info on Facebook.

The Garden is an outcome of the Urban Action Clinic that was founded by artist performer Maria Lucia Cruz Correia, a performer artist, working mostly in public space. The clinic proposes solutions for ecological disorders in the city: it facilitates actions, attitudes, rituals and cures: a re-bound between nature, the city and human body. More information about her project can be found here.
