ECHO I: Did you hear about the garden? from Ignace Cami on Vimeo.

2019, speakers, oral publication, retold and recorded in Dutch, Berber, Arabic  and Polish
An oral publication of an urban legend, retold by bilingual volunteers in the four most common languages in the street of Gallery Gallery (Borgerhout, Belgium), where it was broadcasted for three days. This project could not have been realized without the help of Buurtwerk Borgerbaan.


In his interdisciplinary practice, Ignace Cami (°1986, BE) takes folk culture as a starting point to make objects, sculptures, installations and writings. He thereby activates the contemporary meaning of local history.

Trained as a printmaker and sculptor, Cami started moving towards more active and social ways of distributing his projects. Each project creates a new platform for social interaction. By emphasizing familiarity in his own tender and playful way, he pushes the boundaries of performativity and storytelling.


He also ran the artist run CRYING space with Ward Zwart and is a part of collaborative projects like Haas & Gaai, Boris & Kitchenknife and Nestvlieders.
