A book dedicated to the Net artist and performer is finally released! Visually mixed and laid out by Kidnap Your Designer, with numerous images of performative work or for the screens, the book also combines a fluid interview, Calmel’s alphabet of obsessions as seen by Jacques André, and five critical approaches – by Franck Bauchard, Hortense Gauthier, Laure Limongi, Antoine Pickels, and Hugues Warin. To celebrate all that, a drink with the colour of Calmel’s digital ink (red), and performed dedications.

Lucille Calmel (BE)

Lucille Calmel is a performer, director, author, digital artist, researcher and teacher. Since her arrival in Brussels in 2005, she has worked on collaborations, research and programming in the flesh and/or online involving performance, sound and visual poetry, experimental music and digital scenes. In 2015, she was invited for a digital retrospective at the Centre Puertas de Castilla in Murcia (ES) and in 2019 published the monograph when i’m bad i’m better, edited by Antoine Pickels and remixed by Kidnap Your Designer. In 2021, within and around the fnrs/frART research project l’animal que donc je suis, she is working on a publication in collaboration with Macklin Kowal in the academic revue Formules, a program of LOLanimales pieces in collaboration with Renaud Giuliano and Clyde Lepage at the Fiminco Foundation in Romainville and the Les Limbes gallery in Saint-Étienne (curators: Lucile Haute and Hélène Gughenheim), as well as a research residency with Damien Petitot and Gaëtan Rusquet… She also teaches installation-performance at the ERG, and, since 2019, for a university certificate in gender and sexuality at the ULB.

The performance get-together in Brussels is back!

After nine editions in different places and a hiatus lasting several years, the festival re-surfaces, this time in a more user-friendly format, where henceforth the Thor Studio will be its epicenter.


For its tenth edition – and the first in this new context – TROUBLE is named “redux” (from the latin term which means the identical restauration, but also the return, what comes back). Numerous works question the re-living (a moment), the re-doing (an action), the re-starting, and the renewal : ideas that seem opposed to what we think of performative art. We’ll see the contrary through all twenty-two performances, with artists coming from far away (such as the californian body artist Ron Athey or the feminist afghan Kubra Khademi), but also with emblematic belgian performers such as Gwendolin Robin or Claude Cattelain. Several propositions will be musical or festive. TROUBLE will also ride on the Radio Panik waves, pass through the audacity of young artists from La Cambre, or take some time for reflectional, philosophical and critical moments. The festival will strongly be part of his neighbourhood, particularly in his close surroudings, from a school’s yard to a church crypt, from a mysterious alley to the Saint-Josse square… With several propositions for a limited number of publics, the first arrived will be the best served. A journey with multiple possible ways, thought by the curator Antoine Pickels, to be living for an evening, a day, a week-end or for a four days immersion.
