Het resultaat is een beeldverhaal, gebaseerd op drie gedichten uit de jongste bundel van Paul Demets, ‘De Hazenklager’.

ADEMROOD – INFORMATIONS

ADEMROOD WILL BE REMADE  between 15th of may and 6th of June 2021 for SALON RADICAL KORTRIJK  as a multimedia installation with performances on  22-23-24 & 29-30th of may

( if covid protocol  allows ) 

Red Oxygen is a performance installation and exhibition about interwovenness, the restorative power of breath and a metaphor for the oxygen that the artist needs. Throughdance performances of 40 minutes each, choreographer Pé Vermeersch examines the importance of breathing and the connection between the vulnerability of the earth and the body. The lamentation, as an extension of breathing, is given a special place. The performance loops take place in the middle of an exhibition of monumental red berber fabrics and visual work by contemporary artists. Red Oxygen came about as an aesthetic, healing rearrangement of the paradoxical Covid-19 pandemic.

UNFORTUNATLY, BECAUSE OF  COVID 19 WE HAD TO BREAK DOWN THE INSTALLATION  IN BRUSSELS
