Ze vertrok met mijn hebben en houden en drie stoelen stonden leeg te staan. De vijf gaten gaapten en uit hun monden hoorde ik je nog praten, van ver en heen. Als een boemerang sloeg hun lege zucht tegen mijn slapen.  (Fragment uit ‘telrijmpje’ door Nelle Van Damme)

 

NL Lore Smolders presenteert haar boek Touch Response, uitgegeven door INFINITIF. Deze kunstenaarspublicatie omvat een reeks fragiele potloodtekeningen die ze maakte tijdens een periode waarin vermoeidheid, pijn en andere ellende de bovenhand namen. In een bijgevoegd interview met healer Birds WG gaat ze in gesprek over kwetsbaarheid, het gebrek aan taal, hoe beelden (niet) te interpreteren en hoe beelden herstellend kunnen werken. Het boek wordt gepresenteerd in een scenografie, een ruimte die transformeert tot een repair kit met objecten, dragers, displays en neveneffecten. Als bezoeker word je uitgenodigd toeschouwer te worden van een therapeutische opstelling.

 

Met dank aan Darko, Luz, Nelle, Birds, Isolde, Joan, Anyuta, Jelle, Tim.

Georganiseerd door NICC in samenwerking met Lore Smolders en INFINITIF. Met de steun van Luca Breakout, Sabam for Culture en de Vlaamse overheid.

 

EN Lore Smolders presents her book Touch Response, published by INFINITIF. This artist publication contains a series of fragile pencil drawings she made during a period when fatigue, pain and other suffering took over. In an included interview with healer Birds WG, they discuss vulnerability, the lack of language, how to (not) interpret images and how images can be reparative. The book will be presented in a scenography, a space that transforms into a repair kit with objects, carriers, displays and side effects. As a visitor, you are invited to become a spectator of a therapeutic setup.

 

Thanks to Darko, Luz, Nelle, Birds, Isolde, Joan, Anyuta, Jelle, Tim

Organized by NICC in collaboration with Lore Smolders and INFINITIF. With the support of the Flemish government, Sabam for Culture and Luca Breakout.
