Lygia Clark. From object to event    TEXT
Lectures, screenings, workshops

Saturday 24 March, from 2 pm till 5.30 pm
At the Beursschouwburg in Brussels. Free entrance.
A series of lectures on the work of Lygia Clark and the meaning of her art for contemporary practice will be held by Suely Rolnik, author and director of this project, Hubert Godard (F), and arthistorian Guy Brett (GB).

Sunday 25 March, from 2 till 6 pm
At Extra City in Antwerp
A workshop by Hubert Godard, human movement specialist and dancer, together with Suely Rolnik is organised by Extra City in Antwerp. The workshop is open to everyone but subscription is needed. Please contact Extra City for more information: info@extracity.org or +32 484 421 070.
A second workshop is limited to students of PARTS in Brussels.

From 22 March till 21 April, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, 2 pm - 6.30 pm
At Jan Mot in Brussels: screenings.
Suely Rolnik interviewed more than 60 people in France and the United States (filmed by Babette Mangolte) and in Brazil (filmed by Mustapha Barat), in relation to the work of Lygia Clark.
"My wager was that in this way the condition of dead archive of the documents and objects that survive from (her) actions could be overcome in making them into elements of the living memory of an artistic and intellectual legacy that dialogues with critical thought in the present."
After the exhibitions in the Musée des Beaux-Arts in Nantes (2005) and in the Pinacoteca do Estado of São Paulo (2006), a selection of 20 filmed interviews will be screened and made available for consultation at the gallery.

Initiative: Jan Mot
Organisation: Jan Mot, Brussels and Extra City, Antwerp.
In collaboration with Beursschouwburg and PARTS, Brussels.

Flashing Furrows, Oscillating Ruins...
(after the mescaline drawings of Henri Michaux)
by Joachim Koester
2007, 16 mm black and white film, no sound, 10,5 min. (looped)

3, 4, 5 May

"In the 19th century exploration was geographic. Journeys into impassable jungles or the ice deserts of the Arctic in an attempt to map the last 'white' spots on the globe. But in the 20th century this notion of the 'unknown' changed. Exploration turned inward. The new realms to be explored were the molecule (Niels Bohr), the unconscious (Sigmund Freud), language (Gertrud Stein) or the outskirts of the mind (Henri Michaux).
Flashing Furrows, Oscillating Ruins… is a 16mm black and white film animation created from the mescaline drawings of Henri Michaux. Of all Michaux's work these drawings are most often described as a 'venture into foreign territory'. They are seen as an exploration of a vast world on the borderline of words. My work is literally an attempt to animate this idea. I will examine the traces of this journey in series of rapidly moving images and make what could be termed a psychedelic documentary."
