On Friday and Saturday, the latest edition of the six-monthly Working Title Festival organized by Workspacebrussels will present more than ten projects in various stages of the creative process, including dance, performance, video art, and installations.
The young and independent artists are inviting everyone to come to Workspace itself, but also to the Kaaistudios and KANAL – Centre Pompidou. If you happen to be looking for three tips for shows in English, we are happy to oblige!
Gosie Vervloessem: The Horror Garden
The Horror Garden is an “investigative workshop” about the relationship between people and plants, based on a number of horror films in which plants terrify people instead of the other way around. In passing, Gosie Vervloessem also teaches us some lessons about colonization.
28/6, 19.00 & 22.00, Kaaistudios
Kim Snauwaert & Anyuta Wiazemsky: Between us
In 2018, the Belgian transdisciplinary artist and actress Kim Snauwaert and the young Russian-Belgian artist Anyuta Wiazemsky got married. It was not a marriage for love but a sham wedding that became an artwork to debate the ins and outs and sense and nonsense of marriage migration policies. An exhibition and a conversation reveal the interaction between bureaucratic norms and artistic freedom.
Installation: 28/6, 18 > 22.00 & 29/6, 14 > 22.00, conversation: 28/6, 19.00, Workspacebrussels
Nazanin Fakoor: Rainbow
For her new creation entitled Rainbow, the Iranian artist Nazanin Fakoor (La Cambre) was inspired by The Conference of the Birds, a literary masterpiece by the mystical Persian poet Farid ad-Din Attar. A mobile installation libretto about the myth of an unambiguous national identity set to music by the Swara Vocal Ensemble.
