As a filmmaker and photographer, Jana Coorevits directs her lens at where the geographical, physical and mental landscapes converge, touch. The sensitive translation of emotions and experiences into image, word and sound is central to her practice.
Her interdisciplinary approach, technical expertise and above all sharp sensitivity ensure that her pieces can arise in an intuitive way. Form and content evolve together - she rarely uses a predetermined scenario. This carefully guarded openness to let poetic concept and material execution affect or challenge each other is what enhances the sensory experience in her works. Colour and sound, text and texture are fundamental elements in Coorevits’ atmospheric, suggestive (audio)visual essays. The work makes visible, tangible, what precedes words.

About 'So the Red Rose':
Artists Derek Tyman and Andy Webster (both UK) are interested in the potentials for music, certain key recordings and related structures to act as platforms to recall the past, address the present and imaginatively speculate about the future and in so doing, perhaps suggest alternative ways of thinking and living.
In July 1985, independent-minded environmentalist Vanda Chan set off in Arcadia, her home-made houseboat, to sail the short distance from Pulawat towards Pulpap Atolls in Micronesia. A storm caused her to change course and the houseboat hit rocks close to an uninhabited island. Chan believed she would be found quickly, but her solitude would last – it would be over 8 months before she was rescued.
To coincide with the exhibition at Fred & Ferry, Tyman and Webster are collaborating with Radio Centraal in Antwerp.

"One of the most important aspects for this project was to invite professional musicians and composers in order to use their expertise and create musical pieces that are combining the industrial aspect of my sound sculptures with classical music. Yannick Heeren had used cubase workstation, a digital audio program that allowed him to create a practicable template of written musical scores from the recorded sounds taken from the kinetic sound installations produced by me. The frequency speed of the motor from the installations became the tonal center of the compositions. The energy mass, movement, intensity of irregularities produced by the machines are embodied into rhythmical patterns. "
