I always visit the Artefact Festival in Leuven. This year it takes place from February 15 until 24. The program is always a great mix of installations, films and performances, and the curator has a great eye for works that play with their medium. One of my favorite artists, who will also perform there, is Julien Maire.
In an earlier edition of Artefact I for example loved his installation ‘Les Instantanés’. You are looking at a projection of moving drops of water on the wall, at least that was my first impression, but then you look into the projector and you see all these miniature glass drops, responsible for the ‘animation’.
His work always has this magical effect on you, like when he ‘magically’ makes letters appear on a sheet of paper in ‘Digit’.
I am looking forward to seeing him perform at Artefact!
