Blueprint #1
Hans Demeulenaere and Esther Venrooy
Ostend, Belgium 28 March — 5 May 2009

All architecture is alive. Taking this as a starting point, the artists built a site-specific installation in a grand, vacant belle-époque-era mansion in Ostend. The architectural and acoustic qualities of the house were analysed with the purpose of being reconstructed and transposed to spaces across the building. Demeulenaere and Venrooy attempt to reconcile architecture and sound in a suggestive and poetic manner, whereby memory of and movement through the space will dictate the subjective, physical and mental experience of this unique house.
