CHANTAL YZERMANS Sportstraat 48, 8400 Oostende

Location installation: stables

For over five years, performance artist, choreographer and dancer Chantal Yzermans (b. 1969, Ostend) was the apprentice of Merce Cunningham in New York. Her video installation displays choreography based on three elements from the painting The Raft of the Medusa: the raft’s access ramp, the angle of the light and the wind speed. As a dancer, Yzermans finds herself permanently in a state of resistance and rebellion. The meticulously thought out camera angles serve to enhance the comparison with the composition of the original painting.

Live action / performance: During The Raft. Art is (not) lonely Yzermans will perform her choreography live
