Artist Anna Raimondo, who was in residence at Iméra from September 2020 to February 2021, has been presenting the Q(ee)R Codes – New Borders BXL 1000 project at La CENTRALE for contemporary art in Brussels since Thursday, March 25, 2021, as part of BXL UNIVERSEL II: multipli.city, an exhibition featuring the work of 11 artists and 6 citizen organizations based in Brussels. The project questions the presence and experience of cis, trans, queer and non-binary women in their cities.
Inviting participants to describe the spaces they inhabit in Brussels through the sensations produced by these same places, as well as their stories, memories and projections, Q(ee)R Codes – New Borders BXL 1000 offers a multiple sound mapping of Brussels city center mediated by voices, bodies, subjectivities. The project aims to be a platform for reflection to narrate and re-imagine the place of women – understood in a broad and non-biological sense – in public space through the realization of a series of sound walks in the center of Brussels with people from different geographic and cultural backgrounds, various generations and social backgrounds and diverse sexual orientations.
Q(ee)R Codes is part of a long-term itinerant artistic project initiated by Anna Raimondo, in which her research project at Iméra participated: New Listening Genres: Voices, Bodies and Territories – New Frontiers of Vaginal Ecosystem Well-being.
