Proposal video for art integration curated by Paul Lagring, on Saturday 13 January – Saturday 17 February 2007, Netwerk, Aalst, Belgium
The video simulates a neon installation on the roof of the Netwerk building. The footage was shot in december 2006. (© Gerry Clara) The outside architecture of the building will change in the near future.
Messages of all kind in neon are a typical and familiar urban feature. They are by nature very visible, but at he same time they can almost disappear in the surrounding cityscapes due to their transparant material structure.
The proposed iconography is straightforward and very familiar. Two geometric human figures in permanent action. They fight or dance or in some other constant confrontation. It's minimal and playful. This installation can function as a landmark. For the neighbors of Netwerk, the visitors, the people living and working across the river and also, not to forget, the people passing by on the trains between Ghent and Brussels.
The presentation of proposal for the integration of a work of art happened together with: 51N4E / Goele De Bruyn / Anouk De Clercq / Koenraad Dedobbeleer / Stefaan Dheedene / Lieve D’hondt / Simona Denicolai – Ivo Provoost / Christoph Fink / Frederic Geurts / Geert Goiris / Aernoudt Jacobs / Jean Bernard Koeman / Boris van Nes / Hans Verhaegen / Leen Voet.
The project by Simona Denicolai and Ivo Provoost was selected by the jury and their performance was carried out some time later in Aalst.
