When the countryside becomes urban
Belgium
"Firefly was set up in 1999 with the aim of integrating art into every part of daily life. Its base is in Brussels and it moves nomadically around the city and its outskirts. Its main concern is an emphatically social rooting. Firefly is intended, in its creative work, to enter into communication and dialogue with the street.

To achieve this they work on a series of Creative Platforms in combination with selected sites that they discover, analyse and artistically assimilate. These sites are in most cases non-places, places that belong to everyone and no one, places with scars, places where the collective subconscious is very much alive.

N6: The Stone Road is build up around the dream to make an inventory of all Belgian trunk roads, to interpret Belgium through its trunk roads as a single huge city. The study of the Chaussée de Mons is a first step towards realising this dream, an almost random line, running almost north-south from the centre of the country."

nowHere, a space where a spot becomes a place.
15 march - 25 may, 2008

nowHere, is a cabinet which invokes a dialogue on re-appropriation of the private and public domain. Through personal tags and geographies (books, movies, music, websites, drawings, mappings, photocopies, art works, ... ) it reads as a 'certain' historical relation between human, space and technology.

bolwerK considers the constructed in-between space of architect C.Kieckens, within the art space, Z33, not as a sub-art space with a curatorial reading; a cabinet as 'museum' but as a space with a personal narrative and a social meaning embedded in a neighborhood. The active use of the space for living, eating, working, sleeping implies that the cabinet is more a 'room of collection', in a live, real-time situation.

During PLACE@SPACE Marthe Van Dessel will post live from Z33, as a guest contributor on Free Soil, to connect, publish and share her discourse
with the virtual open public resources of the net.

The the conceptualization of the space as 'ongoing', work-in-progress externalizes the precarity of information, issues of copyright, authorship, knowledge production and hierarchical information networks.
