Since 2010 – Co-operation with artist Kimsooja

This summer, a new co-operation with Kimsooja took place. Between July 26 and August 9, I accompagnied her in the frame of one of her numerous projects, this time in Peru. I took pictures for her new project. The main lines of the projects are the link between traditional Peruvian textile, motives, textures and Inca architecture. The pictures will be, next to video material, used as raw material for Sooja’s next creation. This work will be shown as from November 5th 2010 in the Herning Museum for Contemporary Art (Denmark). A selection of the pictures of this project will be available on my website a few weeks after completion of this project.

2008-2009 Artistic project with Herpain Entreprise

During almost two years, I worked on an artistic project with Herpain Enterprise building firm, the aim of which was to photograph their buildings in an innovative way, a sometimes very abstract way. This extraordinary co-operation ended with the publishing of “Abstracts”, my artbook that contains both photos from that project and from my own work.

Since 2008 – Co-operation with BOGDAN & VAN BROECK ARCHITECTS

The studio for architecture Bogdan and Van Broeck, based in Brussels, has built one the most innovating buildings designed for university purposes: “The Media & Design Academy, institution of higher education in audiovisual arts, plastic arts and product design, is part of C-Mine, a new educational and cultural cluster on a former coal mining site. The project has been designed taking in account the requirements of the programme and the very specific qualities of its context: a very limited budget, a new teaching concept, the obligation to build on an existing underground parking garage and the overwhelming presence of the surrounding mining landscape and monuments.
The result is a building which stimulates creativity and innovation. The study-landscape, around which all educational functions are organized, provides an interactive space for meeting, experiment, social contact and the exchange of ideas between all students and teachers – a genuine “teaching and learning factory” (text: Thomas Mayer).

My role consists to picture the different phases of the wharf and finished building. Phase 1 and 2 have already taken place; phase 3 will take place in autumn 2010.

Pictures of this incredible project can be seen under “pro / BOGDAN & VAN BROECK ARCHITECTS”, or on the website of BOGDAN & VAN BROECK ARCHITECTS.
