De ijzeren boomgaard
The fairytale of Kerkbrugge-Langerbrugge
two-channel video installation

2020

De ijzeren boomgaard (The Iron Orchard) was shot during a three-week (July 2020) artist residency in the small town of Kerkbrugge-Langerbrugge, located in the periphery of Ghent, Belgium. This 21st century fairy tale of Kerkbrugge-Langerbrugge is based on stories, anecdotes and memories of its residents. 'The Narrator' takes you on a journey through these stories while you see fragments of everyday life and imagery from the environment. A personal portrait of a landscape in which inhabitants are the characters, and reality is interwoven with fiction. The video installation shows the landscape how it once was, how it is now and how it one day might be.
