The visual and multimedia artist of Portuguese origin Natalia de Mello and the Belgian sociologist/writer Daniel Vander Gucht are hosted from June 2021 in residence at Transcultures on the Bois-du-Luc site (near La Louvière) until mid-September 2021. Together, they document in images and words in the form of evolving videos their dialogue in progress for the design and installation of a site specific piece called “Le Machin” (“The Thing”), the form and presentation of which will only be fixed and revealed to the public at the end of this creative process.
All the exchanges and moments of reflection and doubt, the stages of work and experimentation, the possibilities envisaged or abandoned, the sketches and provisional models will thus be archived and activated in a visual and sound writing by dynamic video montages which will account for this creative process while “Le Machin” will materialize this dialogical process in the form of a piece.
The outcome of their hybrid productions and contextual explorations will be unveiled, for the first time, on the Bois-du-Luc site (store room and around) at the opening of the thirteenth edition of the Biennale of contemporary art and ARTour heritage ( “The conjugated image” – links between image, text & sound) on September 24 and visible until November 28, 2021.
