• interview Radio Klara, VRT/China

Globalization and telecommunication at its best ! Today Vincent Meessen and me had a talk about the exhibition Patterns for (Re)cognition at Radio Klara (VRT). Vincent live from the radio studio in Brussels. And me – via the phone – live from Lijiang Studio Yunnan, rural China, lower Himalayas (Yes, flew almost directly from East-Africa to East Asia. Here right now in an absolutely fabulous residency run by Jay Brown & curated by Crystal Pascucci). Vincent and me were talking about Tshela Tendu’s pioneering Congolese modern art in the 1930’s, Tshela Tendu’s one time accidental meeting with Jan Vansina in the 1950’s. In case u missed it, here a link to the radio interview (in Dutch).

• Vernissage Bozar

Très Grand Merci – Super dank my countless dear friends, colleagues and former teachers (!): the vernissage in Bozar was thanks to your visit a dream come true. My first happening and exhibition in Belgium as a sound artist, but what a blissful experience.
