Piloot Public Art Platform presents: Travelogue of De Lieve, a video by Filip Van Dingenen and Hélène Meyer, about a parade of troubadours along De Lieve, Europe's oldest canal.
In the summer of 2022, a troupe of troubadours marched for several days along the original route of De Lieve. The canal starts in Ghent at the Gravensteen Castle and runs as far as the Rabot, but originally it connected the city with the North Sea until its mouth at the Zwin. As the Zwin silted up, the economic importance of the Lieve declined and, over the centuries, large parts of the route disappeared. For several years, Lieve's voice has played a leading role in Filip Van Dingenen's research around Tondelier, the urban development focus of PILOOT Public Art Platform.
Every Friday evening for 9 weeks, Kunsthal Gent will host a program centered around one or more artists, a collective or organization. From an artist talk, debate or book presentation to a performance, documentary or film evening.
The events are partly related to Kunsthal Gent's artistic program and have grown out of the courses of artists with whom we currently collaborate, such as the evenings with Eleni Kamma (in collaboration with Hans Bryssinck and KASK Performance students), Dieter Durinck and Ben Benaouisse.
However, much of Vrijdagavonden's program comes about in dialogue and collaboration with local partners and artists. For this series we collaborated with, among others, Lochness, School of Love, Martina Petrović & Robert Monchen (In de Ruimte) Filip Van Dingenen and Hélène Meyer (Piloot).
