Event Description

During the summer, S.M.A.K. invites a number of artists who work with installation and performance. These artists use sculptural installations as sites for short or long-lasting performative acts.

Performance artist Marie Julia Bollansée (°1960, Pulderbos, Belgium) starts the series with the work 'Geology'. In her artistic practice, Bollansée focuses on the ancient powers of the body and the chemistry that occurs when people interact with each other. For 'Geology', she invited travellers to choose a stone at the place they had chosen as their final destination. She asked them to deliver the stone to her, take a photograph of the exact location where they found it and add a text about their journey. The artist processed the archive of stones, photos and stories into the book 'Geology Archive'. With the stones from all over the world, the artist performs slow, ritualistic performances and makes compositions on a bright blue tarpaulin. This universally recognisable industrial tarpaulin in 'tarpaulin blue' forms a constant in the work of Marie Julia Bollansée. It stands for both the vulnerability and the strength of man in need.
