7es Promenades photographiques en Condroz
Marchin – Goesnes Du 1er au 30 août 2015
20 expositions ouvertes les week-ends de 10h à 19h
This very nice photography event takes place every 2 years in the pretty region of Condroz.
I particularly admired the work of the british photographer and chemical explorer Matthew Houston’s who displays a series of beautiful, sexy young females in the nude as well as photograms, abstract photos and darkroom experimentations.
July travels bring inspiration and research with the visit of the cities of Bologna, Ferrara and Venezia.
Lili Reynaud Dewar’s curtains at Clearing, Brussels – Bolognas’ buildings with coloured netting and faded blinds, flag choreography at Ferrara’s Palio.
Jean-marc Vantourhoudt’s photographic series on architecture at Wunderkammer in Ferrara, shibory workshop during my artist residency in Ferrara (Labod’arte), the cities’ concealed paintings, protected churches and scaffolding.
Ferrara’s netted churches and velvet curtains, a painting at the beautiful “Proportio” exhibition at Palazzo Fortuny in Venise, painted curtain installation by Katharina Grosse at the Arsenale.
Izhar Patkin’ painted net curtain and 1632 painting of ghostly characters, both at Palazzo Fortuny, Adam Pendleton’s silkcreened installation at the Belgian Pavilion, Glenn Ligon’s black silkscreened text and Oscar Murillo’s dirty canvas in the Arena pavilion.
A 10 day residency/ workshop working with textiles in Ferrare for sessione Labod’arte, hosted at the beautiful Wunderkammer site with a view on the river Po. Nadia, Véronique and Patricia are the main participants with a few interventions by the kids. We worked with a minimum of equipment, sticking to the 3 colours: blue, black and with the following techniques: shibory, bleaching, silkscreening and cyanotype.
The aim was to explore and mix the techniques on a 50x70cm surface using objects from the surrounding to create an image.
After 5 long years, we’re back at last!
Döner frenzy, playing with lady Masha, D’s new trippy Birks, cameleon at Berlin Auqarium, Barbara Morgenstern’s studio and a privileged listen to her next record (out in october 15), writing with the kids, Olbricht’s fabulous wunderkammer and a taste of the female artists in his art collection.
