Lawrence & Vincent Malstaf

In the installation Event Horizon, dust particles are suspended in a beam of light that is slowly scanning a dark room. Visitors are invited to wear a protective gas mask and witness the silent complexity of matter with millions of fragments forming a temporary micro-universe. Conscious of one’s own breath, matter is taking centre stage, dancing in the light and airstreams of the black box with remote sounds of human masses and activity filling the otherwise empty room.

With environmental challenges, population growth and our ever-expanding needs in mind, the brothers Malstaf sought a way to zoom out and contemplate our temporary existence on spaceship Earth. The aim: ‘Making a work with a minimum amount of material and the biggest possible spatial impact.’

Vincent Malstaf lives and works in Belgium. Working as a music composer and sound engineer for many dance pieces, he also creates installations and performances (together with his brother Lawrence and others) and participates in several improvisation projects.
