Working away, inside the Matchbox, are Fia Cielen and Cathérine Petré. At Z33 they will, at regular intervals, go inside in the box and invite visitors to have their portrait done. During the drawing session, the 2 artists swap portraits. In this way the matchbox becomes a kind of ‘portrait generator’, in which the ‘mix of styles’ proves that the set boundaries between a so-called professional and amateur artist extend beyond the absurd. The medium of portraiture, practised, from time immemorial, in the ‘high’ and the ‘low’ arts, lends itself perfectly to this.
