ISABEL BURR RATY
In MAPping, we uncover the traces of unusual users: of makers, artists from an array of different disciplines, an array of different artistic circles and multiple generations. Along with them, we discover and rediscover the connective tissue of the city with all the more warmth and feeling. Each in their own way, the artists map their city; their home. We jump into their skin and stroll with them through their lives and stories in Brussels.
Bio-Twirling @ Park Maximilian & WTC
In MAPping Isabel Burr Raty invites the audience of participants to go beyond the topographical and historical frontiers that define our own “tribalism”. To enter into the void of our inner and outer territories, mobilizing our bodies into a common – twirl against the clock –, in order to flirt with the mystery that makes all interspecies co-habit in this world. In a playful game and through the parcours of a visual installation, Isabel opens an intimate universe, where the abject becomes a pulse between freedom and domination, mirroring the chaotic and surrealist fragility that you may find imprinted in the landscapes of Brussels.
