The Ghent-based artist duo Robbert&Frank Frank&Robbert (BE) are currently working on a project, in which they are producing small wooden suitcases. The suitcases – the same size as hand baggage in airplanes – contain fold-out works of art and performances. In the Beursschouwburg, they will during the day unpack and set up the content of the suitcase with the title GO AWAY, SORROW OF THE WORLD. In the run-up to their new performance, we invite you to come and have a look at this budding new universe. The message of the work may seem naive, but it refers to the simple – and age-old – belief that with this text, like a mantra, one can effectively improve the world. Everyone who reads, thinks and speaks this text is sending something good out into the world.

During the evening, you can find Frank&Robbert on different spots in the building. They examine, on their own or sometimes in direct dialogue with the audience, images which are at the base of their preliminary investigation of their new performance WHY DON’T WE DESERVE GRAND HUMAN PROJECTS?. This performance is about the human and universal desire to be part of a bigger unity.

Robbert&Frank Frank&Robbert is an artist duo based in Ghent, Belgium.
If we take artists as the barometer for the changes happening in contemporary society, then the work of the duo F&R R&F offers up a richly varied, full-colour readout. Like a well-oiled machine, completely in tune with the zeitgeist and marching to the rhythm of an increasingly globalised world, they are quickly amassing a diverse oeuvre. Visual art, video work, theatre shows, performances, ... the multidisciplinary world of F&R R&F forms an unimpeded supernation unto itself. - Beatrijs Eemans
