A body in love can no longer control itself.

Love Dynamics: Hold is about the difficulty of setting boundaries in the right place when you are made vulnerable by a budding love. At those moments when the desire to please the other person and our own needs collide, how far are we willing to follow the dynamics of the loved one?

Benjamin Muzart

Curious about the intimate interactions between the individuals and their direct environment, Benjamin Muzart first tackled these questions as part of a Master’s degree in cognitive science. In 2020, he joined the scenography workshop at La Cambre, where he extended his thinking from a more poetic angle, through performance. His work recounts the difficulty of drawing contours, and forms a set of attempts to transcend, understand, or embrace the limits of the self, by plunging sometimes inside, sometimes outside.

THE NEXT PERFORMANCE ART GENERATION

Since several years, visual arts schools in French-Speaking Belgium dedicate part of their curriculum to live art: a response to the new dynamics of these practices in the professional field. One can see new generations of artists appearing, taking over the Belgian and international scenes of performance art, with individual or collective works, multiplying collaborations… They don’t make performance art like their elders, they invent new forms, which need new showing spaces.

Partners

A project of ENSAV-La Cambre, in partnership with erg and in corealisation with Studio Thor. Thanks to the suggestions from Le 75, ARBA/ESA (ISAC), Arts2, Beaux-Arts de Liège, Académie Beaux-Arts Tournai. In collaboration with the Wallonia-Brussels Center (Paris). With the support of FiPA-ESA (Financing of artistic projects in Higher Artistic Education schools) of the Ministry of Higher Education of the Wallonia-Brussels Federation.
