Calculated Risk by equilibrium artist Kasper Vandenberghe
Calculated Risk by equilibrium artist Kasper Vandenberghe is composed of three intimately entwined parts: The Ritual, The Installation, and The Story. The audience can experience this trilogy in any order they wish. The course, then, becomes a poetic quest for how much vulnerability we allow ourselves today, in a Western world that passionately believes in the perfectibility of humankind and society. However, how could we perceive vulnerability as strength? And, simultaneously, how do we withstand the gusts of wind and rain of life? In Calculated Risk, Vandenberghe dances on the flaccid tightrope between two profoundly human desires: the desire for balance and the desire for a bottomless leap into the unknown.
