    Grace Ellen Barkey is working on new site-specific installations.

    Grace Ellen Barkey began developing her new project Night by filming her garden in the dead of night. This led to her creating various records of plants, gradations of light, and shadows, with each coming to life in its own way.

    In her installation at the 'Coup de Ville 2020' artistic circuit in Sint-Niklaas, Barkey starts from Bambi's perspective. Can we still look at nature innocently?

    On 3 and 4 July, at MILL, Needcompany’s laboratory, we will be presenting a durational performance of 2 x 8 hours: The House of Our Fathers / Mothers of Inventions, a reimagining of a durational installation conceived by Jan Lauwers and Needcompany more than 10 years ago. Now the house is being realised in Molenbeek by Grace Ellen Barkey, Maarten Seghers and Jan Lauwers and 20 performers of all generations. It will be Corona-proof and full of the joy of the making.
