Sarah De Bondt has done a whole bunch of things we could praise, but we’re gonna hunker down and focus on a few for now.
Her project The Free Library appeared a few years ago in New York and Philadelphia, and was based loosely on a film (La Chinoise) by Jean-Luc Godard. Erase any thoughts of pretense from your mind, however: the traveling installation turned each gallery into a functional library-type space where visitors were encouraged to hang out, browse books, lounge on beanbags and explore the space.
“Overthrowing the King in His Own Mind” is another highlight of the De Bondt oeuvre, a persimmon-colored catalogue, poster and invitation to an exhibition at Kunstmuseum Solothurn, Switzerland. Finally, we suggest checking out Wiels, De Bondt’s ongoing work for the new contemporary art center in Brussels.
