EXPO

Meggy Rustamova (BE/GE/AS)
Observations

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

 

Company
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.

Roy Villevoye (NL)
Voice-Over

Since the early 90s, Roy Villevoye has been making films in, and about, the Asmat region in the Indonesian part of New Guinea.

Through new narrative structures however, he distances himself explicitly from this genre.

Aslan Gaisumov (RU/CE)
Volga

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.

Pauline Julier (CH)
La disparition des Aïtus
