A Last Song for the Titanic Orchestra

Curated by Diesel project space / In collaboration with artlead


Coinciding with the inauguration of Aline Bouvy’s newest Billboard Series, we also invited Liège based Diesel project space to curate a special one-day-only exhibition behind the billboard, inside 019. Diesel Project Space is an alternative art space located in an abandoned gas station just off the E46 in Liège. They proposed to organize a salon exhibition, entitled ‘A Last Song for the Titanic Orchestra’.

A one-day-exhibition accompanying Aline Bouvy’s billboard called ‘A Last Song for the Titanic Orchestra’ is a tribute to the musicians who continued playing during the sinking of the Titanic, cruising with joy towards an irrevocable end. As the music of the band almost served as their own mortal requiem, the pieces of the exhibition evoke one last dream before we die.

Somewhere between a sad celebration and a post-apocalyptic vision, this exhibition presents a group of artists who raise the question of our existential ecology. With works by Thomas ZippAline Bouvy, Eva L’HoestXavier Mary & Loup Sarion, Béla Pablo Janssen and Florance Giroud.

In addition to the exhibition, there will be a reading by Alberto García del Castillo, and a series of musical performances by Milan W. and Orrorin Daydream.


This is the closing event of 019’s 2016 programmation. Join us for a last time this year for art, music, performance, video and drinks!
