Bending Melting Aching
Framed as a one-evening event that took place in the Horta Museum, part of the Brussels Museums Nocturnes, the show brought together site-specific works by artists Connor Schumacher and Sebastien Seynaeve.
Bending Melting Aching is about bending thoughts, melting sounds and aching time. Inspired by the legacy of Victor Horta, I wanted to incorporate in the spaces of his private house and studio two elements intrinsically connected to his work - music and movement.
Sebastien Seynaeve’s audiovisual installation uses reworked recordings from inside & outside of Horta Museum in order to give the space an extra sense of presence that accompanies the past in a contemporary way.
Connor Schumacher’s performance stemmed from the artist’s wondering whether there is more potential in bending his own material, rather than prioritising linear, empirical thought.
