The exhibition Spectres from Beyond is part of the second edition of the Other Futures Festival, in De Brakke Grond in Amsterdam.
From Saturday 23 October to Thursday 11 November 2021

The performative installation “Piles of Bricks”  is realised in collaboration with Malagasy artist Liantsoa Rakotonaivo, based on scores that generate a new interpretation with each new installation and performance (Nov. 6, 5 p.m.). They play with body vs. space, rhythm, migration, defense, continuously changing reality, …
Rakotonaivo made his own installation in Madagascar as well as a video, edited by Bie. This video was projected simultaneously with the performance of Bie, on the wall in the middle of her installation. The perspectives from two different places were combined as they both reacted to each other in their own performance.
