Floris Vanhoof (b) & Kraus (nz) + Justin Bennett (uk)


FLORIS VANHOOF: combines homemade musical circuits with abandoned
projection technologies. Translating the one medium to the other to find how our perception operates and which new perspectives appear.

KRAUS plays guitar, drums, a home-made synthesizer, organ, bamboo flute and tape-loops. I live in Auckland, New Zealand. I like medieval and Renaissance music, Japanese traditional music, psychedelic music, electronic music 1950s-70s and rock and pop of the same era. And, etc.

These 2 concerts are part of the ending of the exhibition "The State of Things 2017". It presents four installations by artists who work/worked in the studios of Overtoon and Werktank. Overtoon shows 'Multiplicity' by Justin Bennett and 'Polyhedra' by Floris Vanhoof. Werktank shows 'The White' by Kurt d'Haeseleer and Franck Vigroux, as well as 'Search for the frame' and 2 in situ works by Johannes Langkamp. More info

Justin Bennett lives and works in Den Haag. The widely ranging work of Justin Bennett (1964 UK) is as rooted in the audiovisual and visual arts as it is in music. Central to his thinking and his work is a process-orientated approach and an interest in the elasticity of the concept of ’space’, with a specific focus on urban development, technological progress and the relationship between architecture and sound.

Bennett produces (reworked) field recordings, drawings, performances, installations, photographs, videos and essays. He brings the characteristic potentials and capacities of each medium into every new work, paying no heed to the divisions between these media. Recent work consists of thematic projects focussing on the role of the artist in urban development, the relationship of sound and memory and the history of psychiatry in relation to the occult use of technology.
