Espace Moss is an immersive, performative and independent exhibition space in Brussels.

The project actuates oscillating events within one habitus, combining three components to create an overall framework: the place of the exhibition, the role of the spectator, and the experience of a haircut. By establishing a context for the intertwining of these subjects, a process of de-compartmentalization transpires. I remove the clutter of services typically associated with hairstyling, keeping only the essential - the haircut - and by doing so, room is made for the invaluable exchange between the work and those who activate it.

The project as a whole is streamed live.

One-Way Street by Yoel Pytowski

An in-situ installation relating performance, street food and the surrounding life in the neighbourhood.

Events every first Saturday of the month until March 28th

More information on further dates coming soon

In his in situ installations Yoel Pytowski place the space and its questioning as a central narrative element, evoking in the site events of construction, destruction and reconstruction from the past or the future.

By creating negative space or by introducing new physical elements into it’s surroundings, his work blurs the conventional perception of the existing space in which these elements — most of them concrete — seem to emerge from, or disappear into, the ground. This interaction forms an ambiguous situation where it’s difficult to discern the artists work in a singular way.

Pytowski’s architectural interventions generate an irresolute strangeness that give a certain porosity to the accommodating space and question it.
This creates a distance between the observer and the identity of the space, provoking, in turn, a new way of perceiving the surrounding context.

Yoel Pytowski grew up in more than five different countries, and feeling no national link to any of them, his relationship to identity and place is marked by displacements, mobile and blur landmarks, as well as cultural and social contrasts. His childhood and adolescence took place in houses that were under construction, which developed his fascination towards changing structures and space. He attempts to question the paradigms of these themes by exploring the domains of architecture, writing and drawing.

“In such corners one can scarcely discern where building is still
in progress and where dilapidation has already set in. For nothing
is included. Porosity results not only from the passion for improvisation, which demands that space and opportunity be at any price preserved. Buildings are used as a popular stage. They are all divided into innumerable, simultaneously animated theatres “

Naples / WALTER BENJAMIN

The session lasts about 40 minutes, at the price of 30 euros.
The entrance fee gives you access to the work and a haircut.

By making a rendez-vous and/or entering the space, you agree to be broadcasted live on site and to participate in the project. Your support is necessary in order to continue to remain independent and to offer emerging artists the production freedom necessary to keep their experimental integrity.
