The concert by the Flemish group HERMESensemble, founded in 2000 by conductor Koen Kessels, is a journey to the boundaries between visual arts and contemporary music. The works in the programme by Wim Henderickx and Vykintas Baltakas are conceived with visual artist and musician from New York Kurt Ralkse. Similarly, the work that Annelies Van Parys presents at the Biennale is the result of a prophetic 1932 feature film – Histoire du soldat inconnu – by Belgian filmmaker Henri Storck.
