2 November 2017
until 11 November 2017
Galerie du Beffroi, Namur (B)

Between poetry and technology, artists are revealing the invisible, they tell us stories awaking our senses and showing possible worlds. The artworks disturb our reason and play with the imaginary, a visual, acoustic, luminous, geometric, tangible, abstract or hypnotic travel in the world of Invisible Narratives.

Event Horizon 02015 - Dust particle are suspended in a light beam which is slowly scanning a dark room. Visitors can enter wearing a protective gas mask and witness the silent complexity of matter with millions of fragments forming a temporary micro universe. Remote sounds of human masses and activity fill the otherwise empty room.

Eglise d'Harscamp, Namur (B)

At KIKK Festival 2017 there will be a programme of performances with 6 times Shrink and the bodies of 6 performers.

Shrink 01995 - Two large, transparent plastic sheets and a device that gradually sucks the air out from between them leave the body vacuum-packed and vertically suspended. The transparent tube inserted between the two surfaces allows the person inside the installation to regulate the flow of air. As a result of the increasing pressure between the plastic sheets, the surface of the packed body gradually freezes into multiple micro-folds. For the duration of the performance the person inside moves slowly and changes positions, which vary from an almost embryonic position to one resembling a crucified body.

Amund Sjølie Sveen - Lawrence Malstaf - Slagr
Performing Arts Festival Showbox
28 November 2017
until 29 November 2017
Black Box Theatre, Oslo (NO)

MELTING is a collaboration of Amund Sjølie Sveen with installation artist Lawrence Malstaf, and the musicians of Slagr.
MELTING is three things at the same time; its a lecture, its a concert and its theater. MELTING is political analysis, fragile music played on wineglasses, and a slowly rotating canvas that fills the space with its poetic weightlessness. 
MELTING has the ambition to both enlighten and give space for contemplating your own life and choices; the small human and the big system. Wether you leave it calm or impatient when it comes to humankinds common future, you have hopefully become a bit wiser.

Jacques Charlier
Une Rétrospective
La Panacée, Montpellier (FR)

until 14 January 2018

Jacques Charlier - Une Rétrospective 
curated by Nicolas Bourriaud.
The Belgian artist Jacques Charlier is one of the pioneers of European conceptual art in which he has integrated humor and comics, but also a professional life and rock - he has released several post-punk albums at the end of the 1970s. Starting from a critical sociology of the art world, Jacques Charlier evolved into a complex and unclassifiable art that evokes the spirit of Francis Picabia while anticipating the American art of the 1990s and especially Mike Kelley.
His work sheds a decisive light on the relations between Europe and the United States in the 1960s, before continuing with total eccentricity in relation to the art of his time.
This is the first retrospective of the artist in France.
