When artist and sculpture become one

 Painter, sculptor and performer Olivier de Sagazan (Congo-Brazzaville) is cropping up all over the world. He’s got over 100 performances under his belt and makes regular appearances in the films and music videos of artists such as FKA Twigs, Mylène Farmer and Nick Antosca. At the request of AMEN & BEYOND curators Colin H. Van Eeckhout and Barbara Raes, this mysterious and confronting artist is bringing his performance ‘Transfiguration’ to Vooruit.

The performance ‘Transfiguration’ is the story of the sculptor ‘s unfulfilled desire to imbue his creation with life. In a gesture of despair, he enters in his material clay to give him his life. He sculpts clay on his head, burying himself in the material, eradicating his identity and becoming a living work of art, somewhere between marionette and puppeteer. But when the material blinds him and he is forced to look inwards, into the very depths of his Self. In a fascinating, expressive, total performance, Sagazan shifts identities on stage, from man to animal and from animal to various hybrid creatures. He pierces, erases and unravels the layers of his face in a frenetic and uninhibited quest. Painting and sculpting oneself becomes a form of ritual positioned between dance and trance where improvisation is essential.

“ ‘Transfiguration’ has to be one of the most original, incredible things you’re likely to see. That doesn’t mean you’ll like it.”

?Alos / ‘The Chaos Awakening’ @ Dansstudio (limited capacity! first come, first serve!) 

?ALOS AKA the Muse of Chaos (queer-pagan-doom-avant-metal) is coming to present her new LP/performance/ritual ‘The Chaos Awakening’. ?Alos associates with no particular gender, rejects religion and unites music, performance, dance, political statements, feminism and anarchy in her avant-garde doom-metal performances. The satanic and musical ritual ‘The Chaos Awakening’ undermines time and place, with ?Alos transforming venues effortlessly into a dark forest and summoning the power of mysticism to give audience members the heebie-jeebies. An emotional sound journey with moans, groans and atmospheric doom. Come and embrace your inner demons.
