Bozar: Hangjun Lee / Benjamin Altermatt Friday October 26, 20h Palais des Beaux-Arts Rue Ravenstein 23, 1000 Bruxelles
Two playful performances redefine the audiovisual medium in an unexpected and refreshing way. Filmmaker Hangjun Lee (South Korea) - who performed at Bozar in 2011 together with Jérôme Noetinger - is back with a piece that examines the sculptural qualities of four 16 mm projectors used as musical instruments, amplified by four guitar amps... without projecting any image. Multidisciplinary artist Benjamin Altermatt (Chile/Italy/Germany) invents an intimate and hypnotic journey built around VHS footage he shot during a trip to China, which is mixed on the spot and combined with sound recorded on audio cassettes. A monitor is the sole visual and sound source of his performance.
