BEGIN:VCALENDAR VERSION:2.0 CALSCALE:GREGORIAN PRODID:iCalendar-Ruby VERSION:2.0 BEGIN:VEVENT DESCRIPTION:

NICC is proud to present a new vitrine presentation and a lecture/performance by Belgian artist Dennis Ty fus.

\n

A visual artist best known for h is drawings\, a performer\, a music label owner\, an organizer of concerts\ , a designer of posters and album covers\, a musician\, a radio host\, a ta ttooist et cetera: it would be hard to describe what Tyfus&rsquo\; work com es down to exactly. Or\, perhaps\, this is exactly what it comes down to: o ne relentlessly energetic act of transgression in which random boundaries b etween art and not-art &ndash\; or sound and vision\, for that matter &ndas h\; are disregarded. Not (just) to giggle highly at the low\, or vice versa \, but to be liberated from certain ideas about what art can and cannot be or do. \; \; \; \; \; \;

\n

For his project at NICC\, Tyfus uses the vitrine as a medium in its own right. Partly for pragmatic reasons\, he chose to spend his entire budget on LP&rsquo\;s\, some of which he asked NICC to order on the online music platform Discogs. These are hung up as they would be in a record sto re window: an installation that might confuse passers-by\, but at least ret ains its function of displaying music we should get to know.

\n

On the opening evening\, Tyfus will play records an d talk about them. The act of taking albums out of their sleeves and puttin g them on will be filmed from above and projected. Both the installation an d the performance/lecture turn the artist into a middleman\, a mouthpiece f or other people&rsquo\;s work. More interesting however than the question o f who the author is\, is the fact that the audience gets to see and hear go od things.
