Artistic performances

« Clay Traders » – May 20th & 21st, 2018 from 2 pm, walking performance

Clay Traders is a ceramic-walking-performance piece, which utilizes clay as a mediator for intercultural relationship. The artists, two brothers (Roy Maayan – ceramic artist, Erez Maayan – performance artist) will create many clay-bars (ceramic objects shaped as gold bars) and will walk around CCA2018 in full tuxedos, offering to exchange them for any object, a story about that object and some conversation. At the end of the performance, the artists will display the objects that were traded for the clay-bars as an installation. (www.roymaayan.com)

« Proxémie » – May 20th from 2:30 pm, walking performance then at Cultural Centre of Andenne, rue de la Papeterie, 2A, 5300 Andenne

By Christine Coste and Catherine Ursin. 90 minutes.

Proxemics is “the spatial separation between individuals in interpersonal situations or communication”. Solid or liquid clay is the central character of this story: Plastic and ambiguous, ancestral and vital, the earth comes alive, spreads, covers and heats up bodies and minds. From primate to human, from virgin space to chaos, from silent stillness to trance, bodies and space are shaping.

« Soluta terra » – May 21st, 2018 from 2:30 pm – Cultural Centre of Andenne, rue de la Papeterie, 2A, 5300 Andenne

By Oriane Varak. 10 minutes.

Soluta Terra is a performance that questions the viewer’s point of view through a proposition reversing the relationship “earth / creator”. Do I shape the earth, or does the earth shape me? And if the “spirit of clay” went through the ceramist at the very instant of creation? We do not create, we are created.

A shapeless mass emerges from a tank filled with mud. A thin stream of water flows over the mass, revealing little by little materials and colours. Slowly, a human form emerges and begins an ascent to a flickering verticality, tensed or stretched towards an uncertain future. In the same way, the creation, once realized, will exist only in the eyes of the spectator, the collector, the art lover … in the eyes of another.


Installation – performance

“Trees talk to each other” – May 20th & 21st, 2018 from 10 am to 6 pm, Place du Chapitre, 5300 Andenne.

By Anne-Marie Trignon.

In Andenne, the trees next to you will tell you a secret. You think you know them, they are so familiar with their strong and slender trunks, but you cannot imagine what is happening under your feet.
The roots of these trees extend into an immense root system. This helps to exchange information about insects, soil drought and other hazards. This is the “Wood Wide Web” that scientists talk about (read Peter Wohlleben’s “The Hidden Life of Trees”).
It is beside the cherry tree, the tree of solidarity, planted in 1986 by the Andennais at the Place du Chapitre, that I will place my sculptures and will shape the root network symbolizing the communication between the trees.
