Singing, walking, witnessing, at the edge of the abyss,
jusqu'à ce que ce gouffre se transforme peu à peu en une clairière accueillante.
Active witnesses of the Clover Hunter (David Ryan)’s return to his roots, Gwen Lebette will trace the residual itineraries of their comings and goings in West Belfast, while Cole (Coline Lemoine) sings of their encounters. Meanwhile, under the courtyard gallery, David Ryan will continue his blocks of drawings recounting the adventures of the Clover Hunter and his acolytes; and in CCI’s Saint Patrick’s chapel, a film from November 2018 captures the children of West Belfast spontaneously following the Hunter and naming him the Bushboy.

Open Studio: Laurianne Bixhain
The same evening as our performance-concert, the Luxembourg artist Laurianne Bixhain, in residence at CCI since January, will open her studio to exhibit her work in progress Nom de sommeil.
Her current photographic work was produced during residencies in European companies working in different industries: car glass production, diamond cutting, auctioning of flowers. Surfaces, materials and textures combine in her work in a way that seems to bring forth another reality. Borrowed from a 19th-century novel by Villiers de l’Isle-Adam, the title Nom de sommeil evokes an alternative state through the use of technical objects. Different potentialities emerge through Laurianne’s images.
This work will be presented at Mudam Luxembourg during the exhibition Freigeister — Fragment d’une scène artistique au Luxembourg et au-delà during Autumn 2021. With the support of the Fonds stART-up de l’Œuvre Nationale de Secours Grande-Duchesse Charlotte, the Luxembourg Ministry of Culture and Mudam Luxembourg.
