As part of Nuit Blanche, the Darling Foundry will occupy the Place Publique for a night of performances and installations. Addressing risk, the playful, the ritual but also the heat that fire provides, Ernesto Bautista, Minibloc, Fernando Garcia, Trent KS and Marilou Oxyde will explore the many facets of what Playing with Fire can evoke.
Simultaneously, the exhibition UNGROUND will be accessible indoors in the Main Gallery of the Darling Foundry from 7pm till midnight during Nuit Blanche.
A death for my children
I find the presence of a media culture scenario a right place to highlight subconscius procesess related to the construction of collective and personal memory. I use a BMW burned car taken from a scrapyard as a sutil torch, where beyond the poetic image there is an object story with a context, names, places and lifes involved, but also just a sign on a global society. Where beauty of death is undeniable under dreams frame an image of a media report but also a political scenario.
Works for Windows
The fire first perceived as something dangerous can take a completely opposite direction. By taming it fire becomes a source of comfort and pleasure.
