DEAR LORDE

Cooper Battersby - Emily Vey Duke
Bone collector Maxine Rose, a 14 year old teenage girl, is looking for validation from her heroes, amongst them the primatologist Jane Goodall, bishop Desmond Tutu and the New Zealand teen pop Star Lorde.

BEGINNINGS

Roy Villevoye
In his work Roy Villevoye (1960) explores issues around anthropological representation, the conventions of documentary filmmaking and the heritage of colonialism. Even though his videos, often realized in collaboration with Jan Dietvorst, are frequently considered documentaries, he distances himself explicitly from the genre...

ALFRED LAOUREUX, COLLECTIONNEUR

Jacques Lennep
Video, apart from photography and holography, was but one of the media Lennep made use of during the 1970s, as he was adding on to his ‘museum of men’. His human models were derived from all layers of the populations, but they shared a common obsession for collecting things or, at the very, least an unusual passion...

THE MIME AND THE APE

Erik Bünger
In the film Silent Movie (1976) a film director places a phone call to Marcel Marceau to ask him to star in a silent film. The world famous mime picks up the phone and shouts “No!”. Thirty-five years later the exact same stunt is repeated by Cesar, the chimpanzee protagonist in Rise of the Planet of the Apes (2011)...

SAFE SEX

Pascal Bernier
‘Safe sex’ talks about drifting off from plain sexuality to obscene asexuality. The playthings and the erotic objects presented by Pascal Bernier are on the borderline between allegory and silent objectivity. The elements evoke a polarised universe in which play and death, pain and the commonplace are reflected in each other...

RE-PAIN

Anne-Mie Van Kerckhoven
Colors, shapes and numbers slowly change, transform, according to a fixed pattern. While the sound gets slower and slower, more abstract. The discrepancy between the two movements, the movement of the images and the movement of the sound, creates tranquility and detachment. The experience is an anti-pole of negativeness in melancholy...

'23 Storeys’ refers to the 23 levels of the Tour Centrale, also known as the 'Lotto Building’ in Brussels. At the time of the shooting, the building was completely empty. The camera first moves from the 5th level up the fire escape escape and then down from the 23rd floor through the empty corridors and rooms, always using the elevator from floor to floor, down to the 6th...
