Studio Cité

For this Studio Cité event, Benjamin Vandewalle sets up a kind of art fairground, which allows visitors to view the city and its streets from a different angle. Studio Cité consists of a dozen interactive installations and performances, each playing a game that affects the way you perceive reality. You can sit on your own driven along in a moving carriage with mirrors, you can dance with other passers-by or you can just stand on the sidelines and watch people wearing strange periscopes on their heads making their way around. You can be a spectator and a performer at the same time.

 

Studio Cité transforms the city’s familiar places into totally new venues, where people can meet, talk, and exchange experiences and ideas. Vandewalle takes the view that the way you perceive public spaces can influences the way you act in them and subsequently shape them. By 'choreographing' your view, he makes you aware of the enormous potential hidden within different public spaces.
