The conversations with Zeger are meant for anyone who has a special interest in art, biology and experimenting with living materials. However don't be surprised to end up in a conversation about distilling and old copper kettles, since Zeger is also a passionate fermentor of liqueurs and currently brewing beer with all sorts of ingredients taken from the elder tree.
Exchange your ideas
During the consults you will sit down with Zeger Reyers to discuss his work and ideas or your own challenges. You can expect an honest talk filled with (unwanted) advice and original ideas. The conversations will take place at our restaurant Mediamatic ETEN at the Biotoop. A great location for some thorough thought exchange.
Zeger Reyers is a Dutch installation artist with a strong fascination for biological processes like eating and growing, budding, blossoming and dying. Using all sorts of living materials Zeger shows typical processes in different biotopes. He makes objects that are shaped by living materials, such as furniture and machines that are overgrown by mushrooms or chairs he sunk in the Oosterschelde that have been covered by mussels. And he is renowned for his rotating kitchen. Reyer's artworks provoke a new way of seeing these natural processes, by juxtaposing the human controllable versus natures uncontrollable.
