Grafixx

We had two wonderful days of making, talking, seeing people, typewriting and drinking coffee – but mostly: drawing. At Grafixx, back then, in November 2016. We bow deeply and praise the organizers of the festival for keeping drawing up in the air.

There was a small HARMONIE expo at Grafixx, where we showed our past 11 editions (already!).

And a beautiful, fragile performance, too, by our heroin Karen Vantvelt who packed and unpacked an (in)numerable amount of stones. See picture below.

HARMONIE #11 HOME is out there and looks like this.

So this is the new HARMONIE! Hope you like it.

We had a great presentation afternoon at Het Bos with two performances. One by Karen Vantvelt, BED-DING, she set up her bed on the trottoir. A delicate puzzle in search for shelter in public space. And later one by Saori Kuno, she followed the unexpected choreography pictured in the manual of the PHILIPS Steam Iron GC2510. See pictures below. Package made, silk screen printed and stitched by the fabulous Lore Schuerman, who found inspiration in roofs and moss, but not only there.

For the moment, the only place you can spot a HARMONIE is at Het Bos, but maybe those issues there are already gone… Soon more info on where to find this one.

Out of Office

Dear reader,

You might have noticed that we haven’t been updating this website lately. Harmonie has been out of office for a while. This is due to personal reasons (mainly two big ones, they cry and giggle and sleep a lot).

Well, don’t worry! We’ll be back – only can’t say when exactly.

Brand new site
