From Thursday October 31st it’s time for KIKK Festival again. We have been working with the Walloon festival for several years, which is celebrating its 9th edition next week. Together we made it possible for Dutch and Belgian artists to meet each other and present their works in both countries.
This year we meet again in Namur, with the presentation of The Intimate Earthquake by Sissel Marie Tonn and Jonathan Reus. It is an interactive installation that allows participants to access and experience the man-made earthquakes. Sissel is also participating in the KIKK Conference with a keynote lecture.
This collaboration is supported by the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Belgium and it is part of the new Verve project. We hope to see everyone in Namur next week!
Sissel Marie Tonn is a Danish artist based in The Hague. In her practice, she explores the complex ways humans perceive, act upon and are entangled with our environments. She is particularly fascinated by how our senses affect our ability to perceive change within an environment, impacting our capacity to act upon them. She documents and transfers lived experiences, where being in the midst of a changing ecology might expose the psychological, social and perceptual/sensory challenges we all face in a present of volatile environmental change.
