For her workplace project Mira Sanders (BE,°1973) in turn invited two artists to set up a long-term collaboration. Her artistic practice generally departs from an astute observation of daily life. In the first instance, the workplace creates a motive for dialogue, for production and reflection. Her project is being developed both inside and outside the spaces of FLACC.
Mira’s first invitee is the architect and artist Annelies De Smet. Their collaboration began with a bicycle trip from Brussels to FLACC, under the project title: WASTELAND. The trajectory leads us through the veritable disused terrain and associated non-built and neglected areas of public space, to the meaning and the representation of that idea. The publication of a newspaper forms the first interim account of their combined journey: part real, part imaginary images and impressions of the excursion are identified, in conformance with a proportional scale that also records the element of time.
The second collaboration leads us to an event organised with the artist Nele Dekoninck, known for her ceramic works. She and Mira Sanders share a fondness for the authentic art of cooking. In the kiln studio at FLACC, Dekoninck is at this moment developing her own Middle Ages inspired tableware that will be set-out at two historic meal occasions.
A dinner will be given on 2 May at 8pm and on 3 May at 1pm, in Casino Modern. Reservations can be made via firstname.lastname@example.org. A recipe book is being published on the occasion of this event.
Participation is free of charge but the number of places is limited.
