21 Tracks for the 21st Century

21 Tracks for the 21st Century: Marnie Slater

21 Tracks for the 21st Century is a series of playlists organised in collaboration with Q-O2, a Brussels-based space for experimental music and sound art. Each time, we invite one artist, thinker or musician to prepare a playlist of those sounds, songs and pieces of music that will best equip their listeners to approach what is left of this young century. This month: Marnie Slater.

Huma Bhabha

Christine Vuegen

Huma Bhabha’s exhibition ‘Livin’ Things’ at museum M Leuven is the artist’s first solo exhibition of this scale in Belgium, with work from 2009 to 2022. What follows is a conversation about the importance of materials and digesting influences, about art history and science fiction, Bhabha’s towering, totemic sculptures and her works on paper, which feature heads reminiscent of skulls, aliens and masks.

In conversation with Hamedine Kane

Kathleen Weyts

Hamedine Kane lives and works between Brussels and Dakar. Through his practice he frequents borders, not as signs and factors of impossibility, but as places of passage and transformation, as a central element in the conception of itinerant identity. GLEAN invited Kane to contribute to this issue as a Guest Editor, inviting two writers and introducing the work of a fellow artist. Kathleen Weyts interviewed him on the eve of the opening of the Kaunas Biennial in Lithuania.

Studio Visit

Melissa Gordon

Tamara Beheydt

The studio is a special place for any artist but in Melissa Gordon’s practice it is influential on several levels. Not only does she attach great importance to the place where she works today, in her work she revisits her past studios and those of other artists. Her current studio, on the ground floor of her Brussels residence, is in the process of being renovated.

Studio Visit

Lucia Bru

Barbara De Coninck

Lucia Bru (1970, Brussels) likes to receive guests at the studio, she tells Barbara De Coninck with a smile when she arrives at her door during the dog days of summer. Bru’s studio, her tenth in thirty years, is on the first floor of a former textile factory in Anderlecht, Belgium. Here, says Bru, is where her sculptures are at home.
