Floris Vanhoof is a ver­sa­ti­le Antwerp-based media artist and musi­cian. He trans­forms home­ma­de musi­cal cir­cuits and old pro­jec­tors into instal­la­ti­ons, expand­ed cine­ma, per­for­man­ces, films and music relea­ses. By trans­la­ting one medi­um into ano­ther, he explo­res how our per­cep­ti­on works and how new per­spec­ti­ves emer­ge. For the sound art exhi­bi­ti­on Hear Here, Floris Vanhoof cre­a­ted the instal­la­ti­on Antenna in BAC ART LAB KU Leuven. This grand pia­no crow­ned with hexa­go­nal anten­na is play­ed by invi­si­ble elec­tro­mag­ne­tic radi­a­ti­ons, like radio or smartpho­ne sig­nals. With Antenna, Vanhoof wan­ted to pla­ce an ancient mecha­ni­cal instru­ment in an era whe­re all things are wire­les­sly con­nec­ted, and see and hear how such an object reac­ts to it.

An Roovers
is a Belgian visu­al artist resi­ding in the Cas-co stu­dios in Leuven sin­ce 2020. Her fas­ci­na­ti­on for natu­re, tra­di­ti­on and his­to­ry trans­la­tes into an int­ui­ti­ve sculp­tu­ral prac­ti­ce that can best be descri­bed as three-dimen­si­o­nal dra­wings. Earth/​clay is the raw mate­ri­al for Roovers’ per­so­nal mini­ma­lis­tic oeu­vre that is both poe­tic and soci­al­ly enga­ged. In her lec­tu­re, Roovers will ela­bo­ra­te on her prac­ti­ce and the work LAAN, an in-situ work that can be found in the Kruidtuin during the sound art exhi­bi­ti­on Hear Here.
