2012, sandbag, mixed media, song “Heimwee doet ons hart verlangen” 40x20x20
This sculpture/installation is best described as a singing sandbag. When you enter the room where the bag is positioned you will notice the voice of an old lady singing. When you follow the sound you will find that this old dutch song, sang by an elderly woman, is coming out of the bag of sand. She is singing about the Flemish landscape of her youth.



2012, resin, sansevieria, rug, spotlight 120x85x85
A geometric sculpture made out of solid polyester which contains a big sansevieria in a terracotta pot. The plant's silhouette is visible through the dense, shiny, mineral-like object. The sculpture rests on a big Persian rug.



2012, dia slide, silverscreen, artist, sansevieria
A dia-projection that shows the artist and a sansevieria in an entangled state. Since this slide is the only residue of whatever was going on it leaves us guessing.



2012, video, bodypaint, arm, voice-over



ABOUT

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.
