  • Sirah Foighel Brutmann & Eitan Efrat Là

is een nieuw project van de in Brussel gebaseerde kunstenaars en filmmakers Sirah Foighel Brutmann en Eitan Efrat, en werd gecreëerd voor hun eerste museale solotentoonstelling. Là is een voorzetting van de dialoog die Brutmann en Efrat eerder aangingen met Chantal Akerman, en een audiovisuele reis tussen België en de Negev/al-Naqab woestijn in Israël en Palestina. Het project onderzoekt de overtuiging van het ergens thuishoren aan de hand van natuurlijke elementen en historische verantwoordelijkheid.

  • Tarek Atoui

Sound is at the heart of Tarek Atoui’s (b.1980, Beirut) artistic practice. As an artist and electro-acoustic composer, he is known for the fluid connections he makes between sound, matter, time, space and human action. In inventive listening environments that appeal to more than just the ear, he creates multifaceted experiences and interactions that carry sensory, social and space-specific meanings. The new musical instruments, sculptures and materials that Atoui employs in the process are inspired by historical, anthropological or technical research. He assembles them into fascinating, agile installations attuned to their surroundings. These can be played by professional musicians as much as they can be the object of a participatory exhibition or workshop.

The project at S.M.A.K., the artist’s first solo exhibition at a Belgian institution, brings together existing works and new productions and is structured around three axes: the exhibition, the educational space and performances.

Tarek Atoui (° 1980, Beirut, Lebanon) lives and works in Paris.

Guides will be present at the venue. Who can answer participants' questions.
