2016, mixed media installation
The "Pollination" project was an in situ installation in which visitors were asked to enter the work barefoot across a path of sandpaper towards an unknown location. Here they entered a studiola were the artist was present.
As a welcoming gift he offered each visitor a bag of honey from his wall. Visitors had the possibility of watching the artist produce bags of honey, draw or engage in conversation. The entire construction was based on the artist's hope for cross-pollination and growth.



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.
