Travelogue: CHAR M.K is a description of the journey that Jean Tinguely’s artwork CHAR M.K made to become part of the exhibition ‘Inner Travels’ in Bozar. It can be heard in the museum and describes the journey from the depot of the Van Abbe Museum (Eindhoven) to the construction of the artwork in Bozar (Brussels).
“On October 19, 2016, I read a manifesto by kinetic artist Jean Tinguely in the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam. It became a source of inspiration for much of my own work. For EUROPALIA I reconnected with Tinguely’s work. This time by taking care of one of his moving machines. I visited CHAR M.K in the depot outside the museum and traveled with it to Bozar as a courier of the work. The responsibility towards the artwork created a different kind of connection with it, a new entrance. With the audio work I hope to convey some of that connection to the visitors, and to give visibility to something of the world around the artwork.”
