Cassette players drowned in paint trapped inside vessels of glass, representational sound, records of performance.

After an avalanche of group expositions, the release of a solo LP, a lifelong ban from Croxhapox, and the winning of the Geuzenessay, the time has come for Bert Huyghe to take a break. However, before he will be allowed to go drink cocktails on some faraway beach he will enter the stage one more time – on June 11th at 019 to be specific. Here, Huyghe will perform a live reading of his winning essay ‘De Bokser’. This text, which was prized by the judges for its wonderful, meandering use of language and called a pamphlet promoting disobedience within the arts, should be read as a personal statement describing the fundamental attitude of the artist Bert Huyghe. After the reading, Huyghe will auction off a number of unique pieces from his oeuvre, the proceeds of which he hopes to spend on the acquisition of a suit (finally).
