Vuurtongen (Tongues of Fire) is created after a residency in Be-Part, Platform for contemporary art in Waregem, spring 2016. The work consists out of a pile of newspapers called Vuurtongen, and spatial works with objects covered in batik. The works are inspired by similarities between a powerful traditional batik pattern from Java and a dry system with freshly primed painters’ canvas in a canvas company in Waregem (West-Flanders). The Vuurtongen newspaper shows interpretations of the Javanese pattern in collaboration with the day centre Mivalti from Tielt along with documentation of the canvas company and sculptural works made with batiked canvasses on discard materials.
