A collaborative project inspired by Fugazi of LOKAAL 01, BRDG, L'édition populaire
and two artists:
Mark Titchner and Jeremiah Day.
The three artspaces will be connected triangularly by the different aspects of the project.
BRDG will be the main location → the work and process will be carried out to the underpass under the railway centers to Zurenborg;
LOKAAL 01 will be the work and residing place and
the window gallery of L'édition populaire will act as a canvas for all designs and will serve as a repository of concepts and ideas.
Components of the entire process include:
- A wall painting and new sound work developed by Mark Titchner
- A lightbox and performance of Jeremiah Day accompanied by Bart de Kroon
- Films and visuals shown at the different locations.
- A combination of words and music
- A call and response
- Lectures and workshops on the inside outside
- A fanzine for local communication
- A dialogue on the self-organization of artists
- All inspired by the DIY band from Washington DC, Fugazi.
During the whole process a group of students from The Royal Academy of Arts Antwerp and The London College of Communication will be involved. The students will be taken on site to discuss, paint, work and develop the project together with the artists.
British artist Mark Titchner's (1973) language-based practice investigates communication and perception. A dialogue on how we receive thought and ideas that is inhabited by messages scavenged from song lyrics, corporate creeds, philosophical treatises and political manifestos.
Jeremiah Day (1974) is re-examining political conflicts and resistances through unfolding their subjective traces and contexts through photography, speech and body language. His approach to cultural practice has been widely influenced by the example of Fugazi and Dischord Records.
