BANG! SARAH YU ZEEBROEK + MARY OCHER + LUCRECIA DALT + LOUCHE
SARAH YU ZEEBROEK
Sarah Yu Zeebroek is an artist, musician and illustrator. She describes herself as the daughter of a Chinese fish and an Ostend fisherman. Making her first drawings in the wet sand, Sarah didn't need much time to discover the magic of creating. There on that shore, she learned one of her most important lessons in life. Every night, waves would wipe out her drawings. When 18, Sarah moved to Amsterdam to study at the Rietveld Academy. After two years she returned back to Ghent where she finished her studies in illustrations at St. Lucas. So far Sarah created art work for Triggerfinger, The Rhythm Junks and Bed Rugs. Next to painting and drawing, music is another passion. Together with her brother Boris Zeebroek she plays in the band HONG KONG DONG.
Sarah never does something without giving it her own twist. For BANG! she creates a performance with curator Joris Van De Moortel and invites an all-female line-up: Berlin-based artists Mary Ocher, Lucrecia Dalt and the Belgian performance duo Louche.
Just like Sarah Yu Zeebroek, Mary Ocher does not limit herself to music alone. The Berlin avant-pop heroine creates visual art-installations, documentaries, films, music videos and poems. In her controversial work she plays with subjects like authority, identity and conflict and, by doing so, swimming against the socio-creative tide. Her work ranges from traditional folk to raw 60s garage, from ambient to experimental pop with African and South American rhythms. Ocher has 4 studio albums in the past 6 years. Her performance during BANG! is dedicated to the release of her new album ‘The West Againt The People’, produced by hans Joachim Irmler (Faust) with the cooperation of Your Government, Die Tödliche Doris and Felix Kubin.

Lucrecia Dalt dove full–time into music after she had worked as a civil engineer in Colombia. Her pursuit of avant–garde sound brought her from Barcelona to Berlin, where she currently resides. While highly technical, Dalt has always balanced the sharp mind of a methodical thinker with the restless heart of a passionate artist.
She has released five solo albums, collaborated with musical kindred spirit Julia Holter and worked on podcasts for the online radio of the Museum of Contemporary Art of Barcelona, on sound design installations and performative pieces for institutions such as Reina Sofia Museum and the Maisterravalbuena Gallery of Madrid, in collaboration with visual artist Regina de Miguel.
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.
