The 7, 8 and 9th of February 2014, Phil Akashi participated in the group exhibition “Art Truc Troc 2014” at the Centre for Fine Arts Bozar in Brussels. For this 10th anniversary of Art Truc Troc, artists from various disciplines showed their artworks in an exhibition room of over 1600 m2. The artists have been selected by the Wolubilis Cultural Center, curator of the exhibition.
Art Truc Troc is a unique concept and a major event in Contemporary Art in Belgium. During the exhibition, the visitor is invited to exchange an object, service, material, trip or any other proposal that (s)he can come up with that is likely to suit the artist, for a work of art and its perceived value. So there is no question of money here, simply of original and unusual exchanges. Once a visitor is seduced by a work, he or she can write a barter suggestion and contact information on a post-it that he will place next to the work. The artist can then choose to contact him or not at the end of the exhibition.
It is an opportunity for the general public to discover contemporary art in a playful setting and it is also an opportunity for young artists to exhibit their work in an exceptional venue, in the company of other, confirmed artists who embrace the Art Truc Troc principle with enthusiasm.
