BACKSTAGE: Kazuma and the noodle soup

Our friend Kazuma Eekman is currently in Japan for a school exchange at Zokei University. He’s originary from Rotterdam and previously participated at KSAT#3 « Mind Trips » and KSAT#5 « Visions of the future » with his really cool illustrations. He decided to keep collaborating with KSAT from Asia too. He sent us a little glimpse of his latest work, that you can check here below. His arworks and the ones of Horikoshi Kota are now on their way to Europe to be exposed on the next KSAT#6 launch exhibition at the Maison du Portugal in Paris. We love his work and we suggest you to come on June 29th to see its piece and to discover lots of other interesting artists!

KSAT CAMP #1 – Les murs murmurent // Speaking walls from KSAT KSAT on Vimeo.

L’hiver dernier a eu lieu notre premier happening éphémère de la saison sur le thème du « Secret ».

Les convives étaient invités à se présenter à une heure bien précise. Quatre groupes d’une trentaine de personnes étaient conviés à un intervalle d’une heure et demi à participer à ce moment hors du commun.

Rendez vous était donné devant une entrée d’un immeuble de l’autre côté de la rue. Soudain, la performeuse Alice Martins apparaît à la fenêtre illuminée de la maison, au cœur de la nuit sombre, cette jeune femme vêtue d’une mince robe blanche court à la rencontre du public.

Intrigué, le public la suit à travers une maison vide et habitée de plastique, comme abandonnée ou en état de latence où les artistes ont envahis les murs de ces lieux par des installations éphémères. Les murs murmurent et racontent leurs histoires à qui prête attention.

La performance s’achève dans la pièce de cérémonie où la maitresse de maison tourbillonne alors qu’elle tente de s’enfuir par ce mur qui représente cet extérieur, ce monde inaccessible.


Last winter we were pleased to welcome some of you to our first new ephemeral happening of the « Secret » cycle.

The audience was invited to come over at a precise hour. 4 groups of about 30 people were invited with a time lapse of one hour and a half to participate to this memorable and unusual happening.

The meeting point was in front of a building on the other side of the street. Suddenly, the performer Alice Martins appeared at the illuminated window of the house, in the dark heart of the night, this young woman dressed up with a thin white dress runs towards the public.

Intrigues, the public follows her through an empty house that’s covered with platic, as if it was abandonned or waiting for something to happen where the artists invaded the walls with ephemeral installations. The walls speak and tell their stories to those who want to hear.

The performance ends in the ceremonial room where the host swirl at the same time as she’s trying to escape through the wall that represent the outside, this unreachable world.

Le cycle KSAT sur les Secrets s’achève à la fin du mois de juin avec une exposition à La Maison du Portugal – André de Gouveia et la présentation de la publication. Nous vous y attendons.

KSAT « Secret » cycle ends up at the end of June with an exhibition at the Maison du Portugal – André de Gouveia and the presentation of the publication. We’ll be waiting for you.

Autumn chilling

Discover KSAT’s launch event location

Last week a bunch of KSAT artists was invited to discover the next summer location for the final launch event. So we made a little trip to the southern part of Paris, precisely to Cité Universitaire, where lost in the mist of green fields and blooming nature we found the Maison du Portugal – André de Gouveia, right next to coloured Le Corbousier’s House of Brazil.

We explored the place all way around, from the outside garden, to the bright modern halls, the theater and the underground corridors. This amazing building was born in 1967 and has been recently renovated by the portuguese architect Vincent Parreira in 2003.

Here are some picture of our sunday visit!

We’re working on the event to make it a great experience for you all! So save the date and don’t miss it!

29-30th June at Maison du Portugal – André de Gouveia, Cité Universitaire in Paris!
