SERIOUS OR NOT SERIOUS? LIFE IS FUN IS ART IS LIFE
Mid September I started working at Bozar (see www.bozar.be) in the support team for concerts, theatre plays, exhibitions, movies etcetera.
This is me and Hugues at the ticket control entrance of a concert by Cesaria Evora. This photo was made by a professional photographer who came to take pictures of the concert and we said to him: "hey, what about us" and the man obliged us in all his kindness! Thank you so much Mr JOS KNAEPEN!!!!!!!!!!!!
Bozar is situated in the town center, just beyond Central Station.
Photo of me by Lavona Sherarts, a visitor and mail artist from the USA.
We did this POZE for a mail art project on the PIED PIPERS and also turned the picture into an envelope for future mailings!
My flute is a knife in the restaurant L'ECHALOTTE behind the Brouckere square, Brussels' town center
The sculpture of the dog looks like a giant rat. Lavona was crazy of this sculpture. I like the sense of self moquery in this poze.
What we call in French "l'auto-dérision" is one of the major qualities in life. Someone should teach this to managers and political leaders for instance...
Envelope based on the photo above
mailed by Lavona to Guido
Tamara Wyndham, another mail artist from the USA put a quote on a Yahoo group recently about "the magic of mail" as expressed by a postman in Baghdad.
"It's something wonderful to get a letter. The paper, the stamp, the envelope. It is not just a piece of paper. It is something sacred. "
IBRAHIM ISMAIL ZAIDEN, a postman in Baghdad, Iraq.
(quoted in the New York Times)
Corresponding with the universe or following the pied pipers who diffuse hate, war or terror?
What was it that John & Yoko put on giant bilboards? WAR IS OVER IF YOU WANT IT! (now more than ever, so it seems..)
