Illusie of is het Gewoon anders
Edith Dekyndt the perfect location for her work in the stately dining room of the castle De Lovie. This room is one of the best preserved of the aristocratic residences. The entire space is steeped in history and in particular the era when a number of doctors set out to fight Tuberculosis. These medical wizards look at us from their frames mounted high on the wall. Dekyndt was especially fascinated by this piece of condensed history that she found under a layer of dust. She opened cupboards and drawers and found old linens. Based on all those traces, as if the room is still alive and could be instantly awakened, she scanned a piece of the wallpaper in the room and had it printed on a veil. She then contacted the studio Artîlerie of De Lovie vzw. Music is played, sung and acted there. She became acquainted with Amber Moreel and the coordinator Evelien Callens. Amber wrote her own text and presents it according to the principles of Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response (ASMR). The sound is materialized by the space, so that the whole room comes to life and characters from the past reclaim their place.
