Workshop Bookmarks – Guerilla Art

Category: DIY

Somewhere in the beginning of April I was contacted by two young ladies from Montreal, Quebec, Canada. They were looking for an organisation to be able to launch their project concerning guerilla bookmarks. As I have fond memories of my “stage” in Montreal, I decided to say yes and this enabled them to come to Brussels. Next week they will set up a workshop in the Bar of Recyclart.

A synopsis:

Date : Tuesday 13 May 2008 – Thursday 15 May 2008
Entrance : Free

Artistic guerilla action with L’Oeil dans L’Front: workshop-exhibition-action!

l'oeil dans le front

The Canadian collective “L’Oeil dans L’Front” from Montréal is coming to Brussels for a project about “Guerilla Art”. Together with Recyclart they are organizing a workshop about producing artistic bookmarks, which later on will be put in the books of the Brussels ‘ libraries.

This cut and paste workshop is free and open to everybody, on the 13th, 14th and 15th of May, in the bar of Recyclart, from 15h to 17h30. Bring your dose of creativity, we’ll take care of the necessary material.

The collected bookmarks will be exhibited shortly after the workshop, in the bar of Recyclart, after their brief public life and before they are spread anonymously.

If you want to participate, please send an e-mail to fabien. recker [[[ @ ]]] recyclart. be or ring 02-502 57 34.

L’Oeil dans L’Front is a collective founded by the Quebecois Elsa Charpentier and Perruche. Their intention is to gently insert art in daily life and public space. The public is invited to acknowledge and question the poetic details of daily life, by making gestures that softly alter those details. For example by eliminating the borders between spectator and actor or by instigating people to slow down or stop public life. Elsa and Peruche are introduced to Brussels by Constant vzw.
