2019, ceramic spinning tops, rope, small publication
Two hundred fragile ceramic spinning tops lay and wait for visitors to pick them up and attempt to spin them. Who is willing give it a try?

This project is the combination of a performative object (ceramic spinning tops) and a little publication, containing a guide on how to play with the toy. The step-by-step guide is mixed with an auto-fictive short story which can live on outside of the exhibition context.


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.
