Produced by La Bellone, House of Performing Arts, for the exhibition project La Face B Side 2016, Brussels
The façade of La Bellone, the jewel in the crown of Brussels’ architectural heritage, is admired and photographed by thousands of visitors every month. And yet, if one takes a closer look, La Bellone is not the most appealing, since it represents the terror of death, and war in its most horrific and fearsome aspects.
The La Face B Side project is a yearly commissioned work in situ. A scenographer goes to work right inside the courtyard of La Bellone, to change the face of this goddess of war.
The Truth, the Whole Truth and Nothing but the Truth is a work focusing on reflection. We see the façade in another, virtual, liquid and obscure space. Real or unreal, this reflection, like the truth, changes at every moment as our bodies move.
