Manon de Boer – Blindsight

Filmmaker and visual artist Manon de Boer presents with Blindsight, in dialogue with Latifa Laâbissi and Laszlo Umbreit, the culmination of the long-running project Ghost Party, which was developed as a performance and film since 2016 with dancer and choreographer Latifa Laâbissi. The starting point of this new production is the dialogue and ambient sound of Ghost Part (2022), her most recent film, realised with Latifa Laâbissi in Woning Van Wassenhove.

Unfolding across MDD's patio space, five acts of dialogue are staged in which Manon de Boer and Latifa Laâbissi incorporate voices of writers and artists such as Marguerite Duras, Eduardo Viveiros de Castro and Félix González-Torres. The soundscape from the film, composed by Laszlo Umbreit, will be translated by de Boer into a spatial installation.

In addition to this extensive sound installation, the exhibition also includes works by artists such as stanley brouwn, Lygia Clark and Agnes Martin, which have shaped the recent work of Manon de Boer and her general practice.

MDD will organise a short film festival with work by Manon de Boer and other filmmakers and artists who inspire her. More info soon.
