about Le Fusée de la Motographie
The project 'Le Fusée de la Motographie' consists of more than 100 boxes. In each box you can find one or more photographs ...
“The project is based on the idea of a flea market. At a flea market you often find boxes with photographs in them. You don't know who took those photos, so you invent stories yourself," says creator Vincen Beeckman.
"This aspect of mysteriousness is important for the project Le Fusée de la Motographie. You get a box which can contain a photo of a famous photographer or of a student. You do not choose the box yourself. It's always a surprise."
Le Fusée de la Motographie is part of the exhibition ‘re-collect’ at FOMU. On the occasion of this exhibition, 20 new boxes were created, with work by Jeroen Bocken, Elena Aya Bundurakis, Ulla Deventer, Marie-Françoise Plissart, Aurélie Geurts, Tine Guns, Gert Jochems, Mous Lamrabat, Youqine Lefèvre, Renée Lorie, Mashid Mohadjerin, Kamel Moussa, Pauline Niks, Sebastien Steveniers, Egon Van Herreweghe, Sine Van Menxel, Vesna Faassen & Lukas Verdijk, Erien Withouck, Ugo Woatzi
Le Fusée de la Motographie was conceived by Vincen Beeckman for the Brussels arts cente Recyclart.
