Vonkveld 1 at KISPAS Open Studios

Open Studio KISPAS 
May 1, 2018
KISPAS, Rue des Quatre Vents 62, Brussels

Jeroen Uyttendaele will be presenting Vonkveld #1 (Sparkfield #1 ) at KISPAS open studios.

KISPAS is a studio space which hosts an international group of 19 artists in an old monastery. On May 1, the artists will open the doors of their studios, featuring screenings and performances in addition to studio work.

Vonkveld #1 is an audio-visual installation which explores light and sound as a tangible and archaic form. Multiple conductive materials like aluminum, steel and magnesium are rhythmically short-circuited and burned by several kinetic sculptures.

The sculptures – made from custom build loudspeakers- produce movement, sound and light simultaneously. As the loudspeakers make sound, charged materials move and produce sparks in synch with the movement and sound of the speaker. The color, form and brightness of the sparks are determined by the combination of different materials used in each sculpture.
