white out

Samen met Naomi Kerckhove vormde ik haar afstudeerproject aan het KASK om tot een performance. Resultaat was een hybride vorm; een ‘live’ installatie annex voorstelling in Campo (Gent).  In een lange “decompressie” op live processed gitaar, creëerde ik een mentale omgeving waarin de ‘trip’ van de voorstelling optimaal kon gedijen. De audio speelde ik met…

For Tom Van Der Borght’s fashion design collection ‘be me friend’, I made this track. The structure is a downwards curve. The first part is very energetic, a bit strange & nasty, yet playfull.

hotdogski – recensie

Carmen Van Puyenbroeck schreef  op Gent Blogt: “De mannen van Kapotski heb ik al meermaals bezig gezien, ze brachten goeie ambiance vrijdag op Iron Muide en zondag met Hotdogski. Dat is een winnend project van Kunst in de Buurt, waar Gentblogt al eerder verslag van maakte. Hotdogski richt zich op de Bernadette-wijk, een eerder geïsoleeerde sociale tuinwijk op…

  installatie/performance-reeks in de publieke ruimte: een hallucinante integratie van buurtbewoners, meubelontwerp, youtube en hotdogs.

Ding

The show starts with the construction of the ‘Thing’, with several men in grey coats deciphering complicated plans, measuring the space and marking out the lines. In this way, at the tempo of the average council worker, the ‘Thing’ gradually takes shape. The musicians arrive and set up their instruments, the technical staff take their…

A beatifull day in our garden. Being a part-time houseman at that time I was hanging up the laundry in my garden. I had a camera from a friend on a tripod standing in the kitchen.

interview in gonzo circus magazine

Ruben Nachtergaele draait rond in ovalen cirkels. Het is één vloeiende beweging waarin vaste elementen steeds opnieuw opduiken: de terugkerende samenwerking met zijn broer Jonas, het ontbreken van chronologie en de drang om het podium op te zoeken. Soms zet hij twee stappen naar links, evolutie, om dan opnieuw in ovalen cirkels rond te draaien.…
