Boom Boom Blooms

Video, 9:16, colour, BE, 21'

At the occasion of the Centre for Arts 100th anniversary, Anouk De Clercq presents 100 unique flowers, each blooming in colourful bursts.

Flowers are never just flowers. We look to these bursts of colour and joy when the world turns dark. And the darker the turn, the more significance our flowers assume. They are dissidence of the highest, most beautiful order.

At the request of artlead and Klara, Anouk De Clercq worked with graphic designer Michaël Bussaer to create a still image that overlays 50 flowers to create a new one – in honour of BOZAR director Sophie Lauwers who passed away earlier this year. This limited edition print is available here.
