Description

HANS BRYSSINCK
Wilson y Los Más Elegantes
is a multidisciplinary project developed by Belgian artist Hans Bryssinck over the past few years in Colombia. Through the process of learning to sing traditional Colombian music he configures a series of new works in performance, music, and film.

Hans uses performative strategies to play with Colombian language and gestures and makes them his own, resulting in a clumsy but sincere intercultural dialogue. From the position of an intruder in another culture, the artist investigates the edges of identity, in this particular case of Colombianity. Instead of affirming and consolidating a specific identity, he plays with ambiguity and doubt.

THE FILM
Bambuco is a Colombian musical genre that could be considered a national symbol and still evokes some kind of patriotic feeling. In Wilson y Los Más Elegantes we witness the birth of a new musical trio, which interprets traditional Colombian songs at family gatherings. The trio is composed of two native guitar players and a foreign singer who does everything possible, and more, to become a local. We follow the main character throughout his complex subjective experience and through the eyes of his bystanders. Read more about the film here.

Sing Along: Thursday April 7, 6-7pm, Big Medium Gallery
In this event Hans Bryssinck invites us to gather with a couple of beers around the lyrics of one of his favorite Colombian songs. He will introduce us to the basic principles of the Spanish language and of this musical genre. For singers and non-singers alike.

PerksYou will receive a vintage Fusebox Festival t-shirt, and an official volunteer wristband.
