Rocamadour (Fleur Khani) and Berten Vermander share the residenceSEA this August 2016. They present their work parallel to each other and invite you to come join them for an evening of music, installation and conversation.
ResidenceSEA presents Belgian actress and musician Fleur Khani with her new pop project Rocamadour. About a year ago Khani decided to start putting her texts into electronic music. The result is a series of upbeat, kinda hard and brutally honest songs about psychiatry, boys, friends and also her mother. In ResidenceSea she’s working on new material.
Berten Vermander presents Poseidon’s Pride, an organically grown trash core beach castle. In ResidenceSea he started collecting every non organic element left on the beach and in the bushes in the area: objects, straws, cups, bags, trash, bottles, cigaret butts… With the installation Poseidon’s Pride he wants to honor nature and sealife and questions the effects of plastic pollution on the ecosystem and on our own health. The act of collecting trash daily becomes a performance in itself, a way of interacting with the surroundings and the people. Berten’s daily practice of collecting waste is a statement about our common responsability in working towards a solution for the global trash problem.
