HOMELESS MOVIES is an ode to home movies, films once recorded in an intimate family setting with the intention of creating shared family memories. The experience of watching home movies will serve as the focal point both inside and outside of the museum's walls.

Expo: Jasper Rigole
26.6.2016 – 15.1.2017

Fine artist Jasper Rigole has been collecting home movies for years, which he finds at flea markets, garage sales and second-hand shops. He analyses, catalogues and digitises them, building on what he calls an 'archive of other's memories'. These personal souvenirs enable us to peer into strangers' pasts. They depict the leisure-time culture and daily life of the past, but also reveal to us something about the people behind the camera. Which moments did they deem worthy of committing to film? And which did they not? How do they see and capture their world? Jasper Rigole sees himself as an archivist, researcher and artist all at once. He immerses himself in the films he collects and creates something new out of them. His works will be on show at the House of Alijn starting 26 June.

In the city: six film booths

HOMELESS MOVIES also goes beyond the walls of the museum. The House of Alijn and guest curator Edwin Carels invite six artists to delve deep into the museum's home movie collection and from it to distil a new film. Starting 15 October you will be able to discover the results of their work for yourself at various intriguing locations around Ghent. Film booths will be set up in public places around the city, offering the viewer a few minutes of isolation from the outside world. Peering into the memories of others, there is certainly an aspect of voyeurism involved. The project elicits questions about the evolution of visual culture, identity, the use of media in the context of memory, and the dynamic between public and private contexts.

The artists all belong to a young generation of visual artists that deal with moving image in an analytical but also personal way. All the artists are connected to the city of Ghent in one way or another.
