In different quantitative studies, scientists have examined how much time visitors in museums spend. The average time spent with an artwork lies between 10 and 15 seconds. 

In ’11 seconds’, Charlotte Bouckaert wants to study 1 photograph with her audience for 1 hour, the duration of the performance. That photograph shows the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York. A generic exterior view of the museum on a clear day, photographed from the opposite side of 5th Avenue. 

 

On stage there’s a worktable with clippings, paper, scissors, paint, etc. A video camera projects what’s happening on the table on the back wall. An artisanal workshop, the studio of a handyman. 

 

The Guggenheim New-York is the starting point for Charlotte Bouckaert to talk about art and the way we look at it, about art traditions and conventions, about the relationship between art and reality, about the museum as an institution, the commercialisation of the art world, woman in the arts, photography and transience, etc. 

 

11 seconds is an ode to art itself, too artists and to the laborious attempts to say something meaningful about art.

_Mind the artist_ KAAP

Tijdens Mind The Artist wil Charlotte Bouckaert het museum exploreren als een open atelier. Ze brengt haar werktafel mee naar de zaal met 17e eeuwse stillevens in het Groeningemuseum. Ze laat zich inspireren door de geëxposeerde schilderijen en transformeert ze tot ze beginnen te leven.

STILL LIFE WITH CHAIR

online live performance

promobeeld_still life with chair.jpg

In portraying the banal, Charlotte Bouckaert wants to pay a tribute to the everyday things that surround us. Things may stand still, but in the image they move.

Live from her table at home she will activate a still life. Not a registration but a live act, specifically

made for this live stream

THE PHOTOGRAPHER LEFT,

HE TOLD THE TRUTH 

One spectator at a time, enters a dark box in which the digital screen of the camera is mounted. A performance takes place outside the box. 

Only taking a picture allows the viewer to observe what is happening outside the box. 

On the basis of mirrors, light and two performers, the viewer experiences seemingly impossible compositions of deformed bodies on the digital screen. 

At the start of the performance, the spectator has the freedom to take as many photographs as he wishes. After a few minutes the viewer is told that there are only a few photos left. The photos are sent afterwards by mail, as a permanent document of the performance..
