a.Pass End Presentiatons at morpho
with: SOFIA CAESAR, VARINIA CANTO VILA, CHRISTIAN HANSEN, BRENDAN MICHAL HESHKA, ANOUK LLAURENS, ARIANNA MARCOLINI, AGNES SCHNEIDEWIND
Landings (definition by the M-Webster dictionary): an act of returning to the ground or another surface after a flight. This is an invitation to us visitors to temporarily observe and intentionally touch that ground we continuously step on. Landings brings together 7 a.pass researchers that started and finished their Post Master program at the same time.
Their research engaged in varied practices and tackled different concerns that are inherent to the relationship between the rules of a given habitat and the experiencing of being in it. The 7 trajectories were explored individually and collectively within the a.pass environment for the past year and crossed paths on several occasions. They all share the sense of place as a meeting point where their research questions are practiced through singular interactions with the viewers. The affinities that these encounters propose can be seen as points of reflection for this end presentations, and can be the guidelines for you, dear visitor, to join in.

Celestial Wives of the Meadow Mari (2012 - 106min)
Directed by Alexey Fedorchenko
Written by Denis Osokin
Starring Yuliya Aug, Yana Esipovich, Vasiliy Domrachyov |
"This movie is a collection of portraits, something like a “film-calendar”: 23 short stories about the Marij women, a sort of Decameron suspended between magic and realism, in which the Autonomus Republic of the Marij El serves as a backdrop for the collective history of a people of ancient tradition. A journey into a mysterious and unknown part of the world." (Alexandra Dementieva)
Oracle is a body-voice practice. We will conduct a two hour workshop to introduce you to our practice.
Within this state of high concentration we are individually confronted with a contradiction to own interiority when trying to embody the sounds of the others. This state produces a peculiar performativity. The body appears to be “reading” something intangible. Over time, the movement score “breaks down”. A unified physicality appears between us. Individuality meets the collective.
Can the prophecy that we offer then be read as a social-critical one?
What is this practice as a metaphor for society?
The content of the Oracle practice covers many subjects and vocal registers. Each performance is unique to the participants, moment and context.
Oracle reads different spaces; train stations, parks, institutions, forests, public libraries, urban gardens, waterways and private living spaces.
Oracle is a body-voice performance installation that takes the interior and exteriorizes it vocally. The invisible becomes concrete, not through sight but through sound. We resign ourselves from sight to access another form of self, to heighten listening, and to investigate duality within and between ourselves and the spectator. Rather than focusing on composition or singing from a musical practice Oracle explores inner sensations coming from a body practice. Voices meet in (dis)harmony. Our physicality embodies the situation bridging (dis)harmony to the visual. The vocal architecture, blind interaction, and movement score create a space.
Oracle is an uncanny embodiment of the moment.
How does one read the moment as an abstruse prophecy?
In what way is vocalizing interiority a reading of the future moment?
The spectator receives the reading as a visual perspective, sonic experience, and spatial-social relation – an alternative space surfaces, a reading with thoughts, character and history of its own, revealing a prophesy embedded in vocal sounds.
The Oracle practice aims to sustain individuality within the collective moment. As the word suggests, Oracle has an attention to ‘togetherness’ and individual agency.
Saturday 26 November at 19:00 Oracle will be performed by Michel Yang (BE/US), Justine Maxelon (BE/DE) and Caroline Daish (BE/AU) during the final event of WAB.

Last Residencies & Projects
Saudade de Europa will participate at Pixelache Festival in Helsinki (22-25 September), in Jyväskylä (14-16 October), and Rovaniemi (4-6 Noebember).
While traveling from Brussels to Helsinki (September), from Helsinki to Jyväskylä (October), and from Helsinki to Rovaniemi (November) Various Artists will be collecting artefacts and stories from local merchants.
The project highlights the importance of empathic trade as opposed to apathetic consumerism and proposes a strategy for change in a poetic manner by raising awareness and starting a dialogue about our current economic system that seems to be reaching a dead end.
Circling Around (without taking off) will participate at the Still Walking Festival in Birmingham (10-25 September). Bruno De Wachter will walk around Birmingham International Airport on 10 September 2016.
"Airports are very similar all the world over. Regional differences are reduced to the souvenirs that you can buy in the gift shop. For this reason, you could say that the airport cuts a hole in the local landscape. That is why it is often represented as a hatched surface on the map. A hole that is not, like a rabbit hole, leading down into a bottomless black, but one that is leading up, into an infinite blue. In order to describe a hole, you have to circumscribe it.
I walk around international airports and invite people to join me. We will not walk directly around the fence, but along roads and paths that are close to the airport. We will follow a set of rules that will help us to stay local. After the walk, we will meet again with all the participants to create a story and a map of our explorations"
"The process the artists Helena Dietrich and Janneke Raaphorst invite to you to be part of, is a journey between internal and external dynamics of the body. They create an environment where one can dive into an investigation of the body in relation to materials from their pure materiality to what they can produce in the body in terms of symbolic awakening. These environments are settings where one gets driven by a sensibilization of the body as an invitation to create new narratives of the self and new ways to subjectify reality."
Helena Dietrich is one of the participating artists in WAB 2016. In July 2016 Helena and designer Janneke Raaphorst work at Morhpo to create shapes/objects that derive from the one-on-one sessions she organised with her public.
Buratinas Captains is a short term residency project, where artists are invited to learn how to drive Buratinas, a small solar powered boat. Once they get used to it, they follow their own way on belgian waterways for a week.
The next team will then pick up the boat where it has been parked, and pursue the travel.
