Rie Nakajima (JP)

This site specific project has been tailored to the Ixelles Cemetery. Located in Ixelles in the southern part of Brussels, this cemetery is one of the major cemeteries in Belgium as it contains the graves of a number of famous Belgian personalities. As Far As Your Tortoise Goes includes compositions of sounds, objects and images that need to be experienced in the unique environment of the site. The work has been initially inspired by the grave of Marcel Broodthaers: he is buried at the Ixelles Cemetery under a tombstone of his own design. With this project, Rie Nakajima intends to observe the relationship between the physical and non-physical as well as the objective and subjective matters in our lives.
