THE CURSE

Harald Thys - Jos De Gruyter
In the same minimalist style that would later on characterize 'The Bucket’ (2001) and 'The Spinning Wheel’ (2002), 'The Curse’ tells Maria’s unhappy story. After giving birth to her first child, she has mysteriously lost her husband’s love. The situation is as tragic as absurd, the universe it deals with as grotesque and enigmatic as alienating...

EGG MUSIC

Filip Francis
The same performance as in the video ‘Mensen en eieren’ (‘People and Eggs’), where people dressed in white are throwing eggs, is recorded from the other side. Now the viewer can see the eggs getting smashed against a white wall. The wall gets completely covered in egg yolk...

LE SPECTATEUR

Michel Lorand
The Medea installation is made up of a large, square table with four video monitors. A single actor or actress is seen on three of the four monitors, from the waist up and frontal. The fourth monitor shows only text. The starting point is a short prose piece written by Lorand about a young woman intending to kill her two children after the end of her relationship with their father...

LE COUP DU LAPIN

Jacques Lennep
Lennep goes to market in Charleroi and buys a live rabbit. He then kills the animal with a hammer, skins it and cooks it for dinner....

GARDENING

Hans Op de Beeck
This B/W animation film offers a perspective on an evolving landscape drawn in pencil. The artist is invisible to us, and tries to tame the landscape into highly singular gardens by shaping nature, manipulating, destroying and reviving it. The spectator sees how the author works out a train of thought in a remarkable vocabulary....

DO IT YOURSELF

Emilio López-Menchero
Do It Yourself mocks the DIY video made for handymen about the most common home makeshift jobs. Instead of explaining how to fix a tap or install a lift gate, the video explains how Emilio López-Menchero prepares the two concrete shoe leathers of 18 centimetres that he considered his portable and human scaled monument for Berlin...

THE BLUE ROOM

Antonin De Bemels
The biological life continues, but all the rest, spirit, sensibility, is dead. We are left with nothing but a reaction machine, like some kind of insect. Always unsuccessfully repeating some or other behaviour pattern, maybe even a single pattern, again and again, tirelessly. This free quotation from Philip K...

MUET COMME UNE CARPE

Boris Lehman
From pond to plate, we are shown the journey and destiny of one carp among many. This particular carp will be eaten stuffed during a family meal. Carp stuffed ‘in the Polish fashion’, also called in yiddish ‘Gefilte Fish’ is a traditional dish eaten by Ashkenazi Jews. It is cooked, sweetened and served as a cold dish at the start of the meal...

WHAT DOES SHE SEE WHEN SHE SHUTS HER EYES?

Karen Vanderborght
A surrealistic whim, an experimentally shot initiation into life’s’ imagination. Moa, a home-sitter, kills the ‘why’s’ in people’s lives. From a filmmaker who destroys films, she receives a camera to record her many experiences...
