Visual artist & scenographer Meryem Bayram is in residency in wpZimmer from October 13th-26th 2014. For her new creation Autonomous Scenography, her fascination for pop-up books is the starting point. Thus she developed a set of basic forms in cardboard that can transform from a seemingly empty space to a variety of suggestive shapes.
Several artists were invited to freely use their imagination in the installation. The project explores what happens when a scenography is autonomously developed. How can the impact of the performer, light or sound affect the interpretation of the material? In a wordless formal game, spaces, objects and worlds come to life and show the extent to which our perception of reality is based on personal associations and memories.
Autonomous Scenography is developed in two versions: an in situ and a black box version. The premiere will take place on 15 & 16 November at the STUK in Leuven.
Try-Out: Wednesday, October 22th 2014 at 20h00 in the context of the Mestizo Arts Festival 2014.
