Vaast Colson

Vaast Colson

Vaast Colson (°1977, Belgium) Vaast Colson’s artworks are essentially ludic models of social spaces. His projects place the spectators into a certain social context and invite them to produce their own interpretation of what they see. A simple conversation or a friendly chat, a short walk or a group journey, a chance encounter, a musical performance or an exchange of gifts - all these are the means the artist employs to develop or initiate interaction. The spectator’s response is the key element of Colson’s oeuvre allowing him to evaluate the social relevance of the message, that is, the adaptability and efficiency of the strategies and mechanisms he uses to develop collective participatory practices.
