Fatima! Paolo! Abdel! Fabrice Samyn is shouting out names for 8 hours at Brussels Courthouse
Fatima! Julien! Abdel! Paolo! Ryan! If you hurry, you can still hear him shout out those names. Fabrice Samyn has been going at it since 10am this morning and the Belgian artist will continue his performance until 6pm, in that grand entrance hall of the Brussels Courthouse (Justitiepaleis/Palais de Justice). Samyn is shouting out the 365 names you’ll find in his All saints book. It comprises 365 ‘tags’ people have left on benches and trees in public areas in Brussels. Samyn covered them with gold leaf, photographed them and then assembled his alternative ‘calendar’: each day represents a different saint. Samyn was only calling out the names today, but the 188 copies of his book will still be on view in cabinets at the entrance hall till April 27.
