GERARD HERMAN + PETER FENGLER + RIA PACQUÉE + LOUCHE
The work of Gerard Herman (Ghent, ° 1989) does not fit in a single medium. In his spontaneous and versatile artistic practice, he often tackles broad-based subjects. Gerard Herman counteracts his subjects with the necessary dose of poetry and naive, and often absurd, humour that do not hide interest in language and wordplay.
At the request of curator Joris van De Moortel, Gerard will create a BANG! performance around the proverb of Breugel: 'to carry fire in one hand and water in the other in E'.

“AND WE DON’T TALK LIKE THAT # 41567”
Peter Fengler is the master of transmedia art. His work musicalizes performance, in which grim absurdity, daily sounds and concrete poetry form a stylized noise collision. Or else, he considers vinyl as sculptures, performances as publications, and subconscious association as a compositional technique. In the sign of BANG! Fengler brings "And We Do not Talk Like That # 41567”. A continuous series of performances in which tongues, forgotten and / or unknown poetry and other obscurities play a central role. This time with a fresh Polish spirit.
Ria Pacquée (b - 1954) has been focusing on her quest for fiction and reality. The streets are her searching grounds. As a spectator (photographs and videos) of public life and as a participant (performances), Pacquée tries to find answers to the most elementary questions of existence. Her interest in rituals and the metaphysics of religious experience, anonymity, city wandering and collecting of concomitant sounds and images – recreation and appropriation of reality by extracting details from their everyday context are also important themes in her work. Much is left to chance.
Charlotte Symoens en Maïly Beyrens are LOUCHE, an experimental duo using audio en performance combined with humor en emotions.
"We are two human beings; sleeping, eating, farting, singing, dreaming, crying and giving birth to particular sounds and texts. No fixed repertoires, but etheric melodies and text changing shape depending on time and space of the event or situation. An ever returning element is the duality, cadence and balance of LIFE. Our lovers, Guitar and Bass accompany our voices together with the other companions; the objects (aka. the Improfessional Instruments). "
Due to the construction work currently being undertaken, KultuurKaffee has opted for a nomadic existence and, together with a guest curator, assembles twice a year a multidisciplinary programme of events at various locations dotted around the city of Brussels.
During 6 weeks our guest curator works around a specific theme. He or she chooses different artists from several artistic fields to create and put together an impressive line up. Each time we search for a unique location in the heart of Brussels that harmonizes with the philosophy of the program.
This spring artist and musician Joris Van De Moortel will be the guest curator of BANG! festival #5.
Joris Van de Moortel will bring an ode to painter Pieter Paul Bruegel The Elder during BANG! The artist and his guests enter into dialogue with Bruegel's allegorical painting: “Twelve Proverbs” (1558-1560).
Every evening is dedicated to the voicing of a proverb of Bruegel, this coupled to a different key.
