For ten days solid, a selection of Belgian fashion designers and artists present their work in shop windows and surprising locations all over the city of Antwerp. Taking the general idea of a shop window to the creative limit, the participants will work around the theme MUSIC / SOUND together with curator Senjan Jansen. All locations get radically redressed, stocked with surprising goods or transformed into imaginative playgrounds. The images shown in VITRINE 2008 are a small selection out of a series of studies where a disrupted distance is created between the viewer and the subject. The picture becomes layered through the presence of the medium(flash) which actively distracts the attention from the subject hereby manifesting itself in the image. As an audience you experience a corresponding point of view to the original subject, which raises questions about position and identity.
