Free and open to the public
Geert Vermeire will present a snapshot of two elements of his 20-year art and walking practice: Urban Emptiness and Made of Walking. Urban Emptiness is a collaboration between artists, dancers, architects, and researchers that engages communities Brussels, Athens, Nicosia, New York, and Tirana and explores the hidden, imaginary, empty, and silent sides of the city, through critical and utopian lenses. Made of Walking is an initiative that brings together walking artists and walking experts in rural environments with deep pilgrimage routes (Delphi, villages on the Way of Santiago, etc.) to explore how perception changes the landscape, revealing qualities and potentials of place.
Geert Vermeire is a curator, writer, and artist with a background in musicology and performance arts. His artistic practice is focused on mixed reality in performative contexts relating to movement art, sound art, and literature and text in public space, and the ethical involvement of cultural action. Based in Belgium, his work now spans Albania, Greece, Portugal, Brazil, and the United States.
