Sergiu Matis "Extinction Room (Hopeless.)"
Inspired by the work of Constantin Brancusi, seven Romanian and Belgian artists bring a series of live performances and installations at BOZAR, every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday in the Europalia exhibition at BOZAR. The 21st-century visions proposed by the artists revive the ideas and themes present in the creations of Brancusi, in an original and creative manner. He was a source of inspiration for many artists throughout history.
Artists: Alexandra Croitoru & Vlad Basalici, Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker, Gaëtan Rusquet, Lia Perjovschi, Madalina Dan, Manuel Pelmus, Sergiu Matis.
Extinction Room (Hopeless.) is a performative multi-channel sound installation consisting of recordings of extinct and endangered bird species. It explores the idea of nature in western society and its representation in artistic and cultural products, at a time when climate change specialists have given us permission to panic.
