IN and OUT of the crisis

Thursday, December 25th, 2014

Victoria Deluxe is an artistic organization with a strong focus aimed at breaking stereotypical images.  In 2014 Victoria Deluxe launched a new project on the topic of ‘Crisis’. Rebecca has been asked to interview 20 young adults between 15 and 25 about their personal crisis. This could be a family crisis, an identity crisis or an emotional crisis. What do these stories have in common? And what do they tell us about the society we live in?

ICE ON MY EYES is an audiovisual installation for the blind and the not- so- blind in which text, image and sound play a game of attraction and repulsion. The visual, the auditory and the tactile communicate with each other. ICE ON MY EYES is not only the result of artistic research and a multifaceted collaboration, it also raises questions on how to make art accessible to people with visual disabilities. In a visually-oriented society, the blind can show the not-so-blind new possibilities on how to perceive our surrounding reality.

Opening on May the 24th until June the 2nd 2013 @ Centre of Contemporary Art Netwerk Aalst (Belgium). more info here
