BOLERO 2021 in END – Gaspard Lieb

In today’s edition of the Empirical Nonsense Daily we present the work of French street artist Gaspard Lieb. Of his work he says: “My drawing practice only comes to life when it meets life in the street. Pasting a drawing to a wall finalizes the line. And then all this only makes sense because we share it… It is always a question of producing modest, happy or poetic encounters, to populate our urban drifts, our daily journeys.” Find his page here.

BOLERO 2021 in END – Miguel Angel Molina

This week we publish BOLERO 2021 in Empirical Nonsense Daily‘s Monday issue for a change. Miguel Angelo Molina‘s artistic approach is centered on an exploration of painting as a material (acrylic) and not as a type. Freed from “pictorial” contingencies (material intended to “paint” figures or motifs in a painting), the paint fully reveals itself, deploys its plastic qualities while sliding towards the sculptural. He applies it on everyday objects, on the floor but also on himself and in direct contact with his skin. He teaches at ESADHaR Le Havre-Rouen. Find his… Read More

BOLERO 2021 in END – Driftingspace

Today’s publication in the Empirical Nonsense Daily presents the work of British duo Driftingspace (Sally Hall and Jason Hirons) that I had the pleasure to meet and work with during my time in Plymouth. Ever since my move to France we have been thinking of new ways of collaborating, resulting in the invitation to participate in BOLERO 2021. Their original observation of the cityscape in all its forms and their exploration of inclusivity in education and the arts perfectly adds another important take on this project. Find their contribution to END here.

BOLERO 2021 in END – Thomas Maestro

For this Sunday’s publication in the Empirical Nonsense Daily we present Thomas Maestro, a young French artist who graduated from ESADHaR Le Havre-Rouen in 2019. Since I selected him for the exhibition ENSEMBLE we have been developing a slow collaboration. It thus made sense to also select him as one of the participants of BOLERO 2021 as well as the upcoming show Troupe/Troep. Find his page in END here.

BOLERO 2021 in END – Neil WOOD

We salute the new year with another publication in Sunday’s Empirical Nonsense Daily, this time of a project by Neil Wood who will also participate in BOLERO 2021. Killer Wraps® is a hybrid moniker and art brand created by Neil Wood. It names his particular style of poetry and his on-going project – where words are written, tested, thrown into hyperbole – and then brought to life in a combination of selected media such as flattened boxes, solid wood sculpture, printed limited editions, notebooks, T-shirts and filmed performance. Language conjuring up form… Read More

BOLERO 2021 in END – Hantu

  Hantu, The-chewing-gum-mask, 2020 On this last Sunday of 2020 we present in END the series of masks that were developed by Hantu (weber + delsaux) during the last year. The first ones were presented beginning of April during an online conference for their equally online exhibition at Bureau Doove. Since then the series has grown considerably, at once a tongue-in-cheek comment on and protest against this strange object that has invaded our daily lives. Hantu will contribute to the new edition of Bolero in spring 2021. For now find their contribution… Read More
