Join Psykick Dancehall & LEGROOM at Castlefield Gallery New Art Spaces: Great Northern Tower [Unit 4] on Wednesday 4 October when they present:
is a Brussels-based artist and composer. Coming from a background in minimalist and structural composition, he gradually moved into written text and visual art. In his performances, Henry works mostly with spoken text, repeating and gradually changing words until the material of the language comes forward and begins to threaten the easy reading of the words themselves. In his debut album for KRAAK, ‘Stanzas’ or ‘The Law of the Good Neighbour’, Henry documents a year long process where pairs of friends read simultaneously from an ongoing text by the artist. The text at one documents the difficulty of this seemingly simple task and the changing conditions of the artist as he continues to write over many years.
