Description

De ijzeren boomgaard was shot during a three-week (July 2020) artist-in-residence in the small town of Kerkbrugge-Langerbrugge, in the periphery of Ghent, Belgium. This 21st century fairytale of Kerkbrugge-Langerbrugge is based on stories, anecdotes and memories of the residents. The Narrator takes you along these stories while you see fragments of everyday life and images of the environment. A personal portrait of the landscape, in which inhabitants are the characters and reality is interwoven with fiction. The video installation shows the landscape how it once was, is now and maybe one day will be.
