On the occasion of the closing event in our Boutique without clothes, we presented works that have been developed during a six months residency in an empty shop space in Schaarbeek, Brussels. Besides our own contributions we showed a series of photographs by Stephan Keppel. The setting of the presentation and the works themselves reflected several central topics of this residency: the relation and dependency between the notions price, value, virtue and worth.

Before we eventually shut it down, we would like to invite you for a closing event in our 'boutique without clothes' in Schaerbeek/ Brussels.
Everything that will be present during the six hours of the shop's opening is or has been subject to our working process.
During six months this place was a tool for us to put things - such as clothes, the neighborhood, a dysfunctional water-tap, various languages, a shop-window and many more - at our disposal, Liquidation Totale is a way to hand these things on, although probably in altered states.
