Academic

My name is Bart Duriez. For several years, I was a post-doc at the psychology department of the KULeuven (Belgium) where I conducted research on a variety of topics, including intergroup relations, racism, prejudice, authoritarianism, religiosity, goals and values, morality, personality, empathy, well-being, attachment, processes of personal, social and national identity, and parent and peer influences. During this time, I taught courses in personality psychology, developmental psychology and research methods, and I supervised several master and PhD students. Currently, I am a researcher at the Karel De Grote Hogeschool.

Artistic

Mister Rabbit is my less neurotic alter. He embodies my repressed desires and drives. He is a true rock ‘n’ roll animal with a keen interest in art, photography, and web design. You can book us for anything related to art, photography, and web design. As for photography, we are currently using a Nikon D800 but we also have some less fancy equipment at our disposal (e.g., a Nikon D300). As for web design, we either make websites in plain HTML and CSS (flavoring them with a bit of JavaScript) or in Drupal (for your convenience).

Artist Statement

Our art highlights the dark side of living in times with seemingly unlimited possibilities for self-construal and self-actualization. In general, our artwork deals with existential loneliness and the difficulties people experience when trying to construct a unique personal identity and when trying to interact with others. To this end, we seek inspiration in pop art, psychoanalysis, the music and movies we are trying to grow up with, and other elements of contemporary popular culture. Often, through what reminds of stills of movies in which nothing of any significance ever happens, we create a claustrophobic universe in which people are always trapped or isolated in one way or another. In our more recent work (e.g, Love and Other Horror Stories), we are making an effort to hide our typical minimalist pathos underneath a layer of playfulness.

(2012) Kunstroute Leuven

Kunstroute Leuven intends to give people a chance to visit the work place of local artists. This is not the official website though. We merely made our own version of this website to practice / show off. The information is fully accurate though. Dutch only.

Artwork

(2012) New Collection

I finally finalized the series Love and Other Horror Stories. These works already existed. I used to present them in DVD-boxes glued to a wooden frame. Now they are on dibond. Sadly enough, due to a lack of storage space, I had to destroy the old versions.

Artwork

(2009) Kaboum

In my opinion, the idea was great. Alas, the result and the process itself were pretty far from what I had in mind. No explosions, not ready in time, ... Continuing after the exhibition was no option either as, worst of all, everything got fucking stolen.

(2009) Penis Envy

I always liked the concept and pitied the have-nots. An excellent topic for a poster art project too. In collaboration with Laura Groeseneken. This project was also supposed to honor the legacy of Rogier van der Weyden (and I am still half Barbarian).

(2009) Rabbit Groupie T-shirt

Artwork

(2009) The Rabbit Book

Intended as an integral part of the Rabbit Story, the book provides more background information to the story. It taps a bit more into the revenge theme too. Hence the references (both explicit and more covert) to Kill Bill. In short: Extra text and extra images.

Web Design

(2008) Fair Trade Night

I very much like the background picture as such, but it was merely intended for this design.

Artwork

(2008) The Rabbit Story

A story about a bunny rabbit with an attachment disorder. But first and foremost, a story about a girl, and about the clash between romantic ideals and reality. A story about expectations, and what these lead to. Inspired by an e-mail from Jessica Taylor.

(2007) Transformations

This depressed me and made me optimistic at the same time. Did I just miss out on the apocalypse? Is there really nothing coming up in the near future? Or will everything be different and maybe even better and more exciting in the future? Change and the inherent insecurity...

Artwork

(2007) The Corridor

Artwork

(2007) Self-Portrait

Inspired by David Lynch. Also, I find both doors and curtains very powerful symbols. They veil and unveil. They either provide shelter of an opening to another world, depending on your current position and state of mind. They provide a bit of mystery.

(2006) Holidays in Cambodia

I was fascinated by a country which still bares the visible scars of a recent civil war. This series mixes pictures of contemporary Cambodia with pictures of pictures the Khmer Rouge made of their prisoners, and boils these images in punk esthetics flavored with a touch of pop art.

Artwork

(2006) Dead Boards 1 & 2

My first photographic artwork. A tribute to 70s Gilbert and George. Originally only intended to decorate my own walls.

Artwork

(2006) George and Ariel in NY

This work suggests a secret sadomosochist love affair between George Bush and Ariel Sharon. Captain America, who symbolized the American way of life, is there to protect them. Alas, when Liechtenstein's Whaaam crahes into of one the Twin Towers, our hero drowns in a sea of dictator heads.

(2005) Cityscapes

At this point in time, I discovered how to use and make brushes in photoshop, and I enjoyed playing around with them a lot. This series was "painted" with brushes derived from pictures of details of the city I live in. The idea was to reconstruct the image of a city from these details.

Artwork

(2005) Landscape

I was enrolled in an art school for a short while. Assignment #1 was to create three landscapes in illustrator, using maximum three colors. Not spectacular but I somehow like them.

Contact

There are plenty of ways in which you can contact us. Really. If you see me or Mister Rabbit around, talk to us. If not, come over and camp in front of our door. Or call us. We have a phone and a skype account. Or send us a letter. Just drop it in our mailbox, have it delivered by the mailman, tie it around the neck of a pigeon, or put it in a bottle and throw it in the ocean. If this is too upfront, try attracting our attention via sign language or smoke signals. If that don't work, try throwing engraved rocks at us. Or go for an easy option. You appear to be sitting in front of your computer, so why not just send us an e-mail. All other information (e.g., address and phone number) can be found by opening the Google Map.
