Video portrait: Koen Delaere
For the 2021 Le Guess Who? artwork, the festival will initiate a special collaboration with Dutch visual artist Koen Delaere. Koen will create physical, painted canvases that will collectively form the final artwork (realized in collaboration with design agency Van Lennep); its several stages to the end result will be revealed in the months leading up to the festival.
In collaboration with Canal180, Le Guess Who? made a video portrait about Koen Delaere in which we discuss his analogue, physical method of creation; how his work is inspired by music; and the importance of being bored.
