residency, NWNM

Since 2018 the artists Carolin Gieszner and Théo Demans, both of whom currently live and work in Brussels, are co-creating the visceral universe of ‘touche-touche’. Their work is based on creating dream-like, scenographic experiences as a free fall of tangible reality. With a focus on a liberated form of craftsmanship, creating sculptures and immersive installations, their work evokes new fictions for daily scenarios that deepen the sensual relationship we have with our surroundings. Each imagined scene is a reinterpretation of existing cultural traditions and techniques.

During their residency, taking place in Decoratelier, they use fabrics and bright colours in order to shape experimental spaces for a night. Centralizing brightness and joy, they create different challenging spaces that can host groundbreaking nights.
