2014, black jeans vest, white chalk 40x60x10
In wearing the vest at social events the chalk rubs off on others, like pollen rubbing off on bees. This act of rubbing off on people is not a performance that is played out within certain boundaries, but becomes a part of everyday life as it is not only worn at artshows but at all social happenings and events.



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.
