PURE is an immersive experience at the intersection of performance and visual art, experienced through all of the senses. As a visitor, you pass along a course made up of visual
compositions, each of which is activated by your presence. Allow yourself to let go of sight as the dominant sense and discover how you shape reality on the basis of your own personal background and body.
Christian Bakalov (1973) studied ballet at the Sofia Opera and Ballet before starting his own dance career in France. Since 2009, he has lived and worked in Brussels. He has performed in productions by the likes of Ivo Dimchev, Miet Warlop and Jérôme Bel. In 2014, he started creating his own works. Inspired by Spinoza’s concept of eternity, he developed the ETERNIA trilogy, made up of the installations BRIGHT (2014), PURE (2018) and ETERNAL (2019).
In his work, he explores the boundaries between installation and performative action and develops methods that submerge the audience in a parallel world.
