Laurence Rassel Bookcase

April 12th, 2014

A few days visiting Laurence Rassel and Nicolas Malevé in Barcelona means a good dose of walking, delicious food, special wines, real conversations and a great bookcase to dive into!

*** I particularly enjoyed the bookcase: a perfect reflection of a working mind and practical research .
The top of the bookcase is tidy, organised alphabetically and by section: an archive of knowledge.
The bottom part is chaotic, books and photocopied articles are piled up: the proof of work in process.

*** I dug up some food for my studio research:

Exhibition at Wiels of German artist Franz Erhard Walther: with a large installation of his fabric pieces, watercolour studies of his works and their manipulation, reproductions of his body sculptures which the viewer can experiment, this exhibition is a really pleasurable experience.

LADYFEST

April 12th, 2014

14th, 15th, 16th march 2014, Brussels.

What’s a Ladyfest?
A Ladyfest is a community based, DIY, not for profit festival.
The 1st Ladyfest was conducted in Olympia (USA) in 2000 in order to react to the invisibility of women on the artistic and musical scene.
Ladyfest opened a space of expression for women artists and activists during a few days with performances, concerts, discussions. The concept has spread to more than 50 cities around the world, each festival making a unique event.
Ladyfests are based on the idea of creating alternative, friendly and open spaces.
The idea is simple: a group of volunteers organises a festival during a couple of days around issues such as creativity, autonomy, exchange of knowledge, gender equality and struggle against heteronormality.
Its also an opportunity to build a community, generate discussions and collaborations between women, the local and the international community network.

I was invited to show some work along with the following artists: Alice Smith, Charlotte Verdin, Megan Beard, Barbara Kayl, Alice Steinmetz, Hélène Antoine.

Motorbikes are a big thing in Iran with its cheap fuel and large spaces, some motorbikes just seemed to drive up and down to kill time. Textile tuning and no helmets.
