Jacques Lennep
A short conceptual work by this Belgian pioneering video artist about corporality and memory. The artist is in a room that resembles the lavatory of a school of gym.

HET LEEG

Didier Volckaert
"Don Quichote never really existed. However, in La Mancha, Spain, you can still find his traces. I once read in a travel guide that ‘there is absolutely nothing to be seen in this area of Spain’. My camera captured that ‘absolutely nothing’ and I took it home. Made on S8 and blown up to 16mm." (Source: Didier Volckaert)...

ERIC ET L'OISEAU BLEU

140 BALLETJES

Luc Coeckelberghs

The camera records their presence from across the room, but also from above and from the side. Passing by slowly, the camera is suggesting movement. The balls interact with the patterns on the floor and the walls...
