Meggy Rustamova (BE/GE/AS)
Vernissage: Friday 2.10 - 19:00
Open: 3.10 - 28.11, We-Sa, 12:00 - 18:00 (Sa > 19:00)
Meggy Rustamova's (°1985) work – videos, performances, installations with a deeper poetic layer – perfectly matches the generational and familial themes we delve into in The Kids Are All Right. The presence of Rustamova’s mother in the video M.A.M. (My Assyrian Mother) will meander through the expo, together with chronicles about fictional characters she wrote herself and with photographic sound installations.
FILM & VIDEO
A film programme by Sirah Foighel Brutmann and Eitan Efrat, with Meggy Rustamova & Pieter Geenen
Th. 5.11, 20:30
In the screening programme Company, four local artists join to present their work. They all belong to the same generation: on the one hand because they are of the same age, on the other hand because they belong to the same artistic family - because of the artistic story they tell, with a similar approach and method of working.

My Talk with Florence
Th. 26.11, 20:30 - Belgian premiere
This controversial film, brought in two unedited parts, is a highly unsettling reading of the social liberalisation on the one hand, and liberal machiavellism on the other.

Roy Villevoye (NL)
Since the early 90s, Roy Villevoye has been making films in, and about, the Asmat region in the Indonesian part of New Guinea. In his work, he explores issues around anthropological representation and the conventions of documentary filmmaking. Through new narrative structures however, he distances himself explicitly from this genre.

Aslan Gaisumov (RU/CE)
In this straightforward, but no less effective video, 24-year-old Aslan Gaisumov confronts us with the tragic conflict in his native war-torn Chechnya. This partly autobiographical document shows how fleeing families, sometimes by their dozens, try to fit into small cars in search of a safe haven.
18.11 - 21/11

La disparition des Aïtus
The Swiss Pauline Julier came across a small news item rather accidentally. Tuvalu, a forgotten archipelago of nine small islands in the Pacific Ocean, sees its existence threatened by rising sea levels. It is expected that the archipelago will be engulfed by water within less than 30 years.
