Under the curatorial leadership of Vincent Honoré, Independent Brussels 2018 will reframe the art fair model into a performative festival welcoming live art, installations, curated displays, music, and discussions, resulting in an arena for experimentation, unexpected interactions and collective thinking.
For the first time, Independent has commissioned several debut performances and related talks for the 2018 Edition in November.
Laure Prouvost's This Voice is a big Lips (2013) is a sound piece which will be installed in the fair's restrooms. In the piece, the artist's work addresses the viewer directly. The work is an intimate meditation on a pair of lips that are "hovering just above you".
