Katleen Vermeir & Ronny Heiremans The Good Life
The artist duo launched the proposal to expand areas of the Arnolfini Art Centre in Bristol and to build generous luxury flats. The idea grew into a collective project involving, among others, 51N4E, Justin Bennett, Amir Borenstein and Pierre Huyghebaert. For this project, The Good Life entails a film and a publication, which for the occasion was realised as a lifestyle magazine.

She assumes the guise of an “invisible” artist, who gradually becomes a “missing body” between the audience.
Basketball is an energetic three piece driven by live electronics, spirited vocals, and massive percussion that grows into pulsating dance beats. From Tome's vocals in his native tongues, Croatian and English, to the Persian scales, to the gypsy-esque spirit, Basketball exists amongst a history of music played on street corners and at celebrations around the world.
