Philip Vermeulen

By popping tennis balls at about 150 to 160 km per hour, at a distance of 14 metres, against two sound boxes, Philip Vermeulen creates the funkiest rhythms and thumping beats. With his impressive installation and composition Physical Rhythm Machine / Boem BOem, the young artist received acclaim at several festivals, such as Halle Am Berghain in Berlin and Mapping Festival in Geneva.

Herwig Ilegems

In Head to Head, Herwig Ilegems has a literal tête-à-tête with a variety of animals. He carefully places his forehead on an animal’s beak, nose or forehead. Will it allow this? Ilegems has no idea. Not wanting to force the animal, he tries to develop a relationship of trust. […]

Rinus Van de Velde

With drawings, sculptures, installations and moving images, Rinus Van de Velde (1983) creates intriguing, almost filmic scenes in which elements from our reality and his imagination merge. Especially for Voorlinden, he will create an exhibition in which he combines his own work with his favourite works from the museum’s collection.
