So many steps, so little time
4 December 2016 - 15 January 2017
@ DE BOND, Bruges / curated by Jerome Jacobs
‘So many steps, so little time’ by guest curator Jerome Jacobs is presented to you by Cultuurcentrum Brugge within the framework of December Dance 2016.
Jacobs’ approach to UK dance, movement and performance art is vibrant and dynamic. He focuses mainly on video art and documentaries, to which he adds photos, visual art works and a number of performances. Conscious of recent history, Jacobs creates a timeline that starts in the postpunk era with works by Gavin Turk, Sid Vicious and others, continues in the1980-1990’s club scene with art by emblematic figures like Leigh Bowery, and ends in the present day.
His art highlights the opposition between elements like silence, slowness and a sense of movement on the one hand and noise pollution and dynamism on the other. Thematically, he focuses on the many layers and facets of Britain’s multicultural society and on the fear of the other, the outsider, the unknown body.
