Rolina E. Blok
IT’S ALL JUST SMOKE AND MIRRORS
Residency: mars 2018
Sagacity has welcomed the artist Rolina E. Blok for a residency in Brussels.
Blok’s ongoing work IT’S ALL JUST SMOKE AND MIRRORS encompasses multiple subjects, primarily focusing on the human condition through the prism of stage magic/illusionism, alchemy, occultism, ritual, night-life, entertainment, desire, sin, excess, fathers, funfairs, the obscene, music and memory.
Inspired by experiences from growing up in both the Netherlands and Romania, Blok is also influenced by her time in London. A fusion of 3 cultures manifests in a display of printmaking, installation, video art and performance, accompanied by sound and special effects.
